Detroit Bike City 2014 & Beyond Recap @detroitbikecity

We had 12 for our group. Four took bikes even thought the weather forecast said wintry mix. Of course there was no rain or snow in Detroit so the rest of us were kinda bummed we didn't bring bikes.

As we entered Detroit we stopped at Los Galanes in Mexicantown for breakfast. The food is always great there. The Detroit Bike City show has expanded each year we have attended and this year was even better. There is a great mix of local bike shops, builders, advocacy and event booths, plus demo areas for bmx, kids, electric bikes and a swap meet. Some of us picked up equipment while others marveled at cool tech and bike porn. The show was well attended but not over crowded.

Afterwards we headed to Atwater Brewery for a beer. Atwater is always a great place to hang out. We headed toward 8 mile to see The Thunderdrome and Craig ran around the track while we cheered him on. For dinner we headed downtown to Grand Trunk. Before leaving Detroit we swung by Belle Isle and The Heidelberg Project.
