Tuesday Training Rides
Increase your pedal power at training rides for the Baroudeur! Please join us for weekly group bicycle rides that preview sections of the Baroudeur routes, giving an up-close sneak peek at the texture and character that defines metro Detroit. You'll also build camaraderie with other riders while enjoying a workout.
There are a minimum of three distinct groups based on speed and distance, so we have something for everyone from the competitive cyclist to the weekend cruiser. All of these no-drop rides depart at 6 p.m. from WSU Parking Lot 34 on Ferry Street just west of Woodward. Cyclists of all abilities are welcome to join the complimentary rides. Free parking is provided.
