There was a lot going on in Detroit this past weekend – from the goings on at Phil Cooley’s Ponyride to the Cornhole tournament in Roosevelt Park to the Next Urban Chef competition at Eastern Market to the Tour De Troit, which I shot Saturday morning all over town.
The idea is simple: Get as many people as possible to show for a bike ride through the city. It started small, a few years ago. This year, more than 5,000 people showed up. There was no way to miss it if you live in or around downtown or Midtown.
The featured shot here is my favorite – speaks volumes about the range of folks who showed and the backdrop against which all this stuff takes place.
My second favorite is below, where you can see the sign on Michigan Central Station more clearly.
“Be a part of the rebirth of Detroit.”
