Only 7 of us joined Alex from Detroit Bikes/Detroit Synergy as it was pissing rain all morning long. The most interesting fact that was shared was a particular style of Architecture that was created by one of the car designers that worked at Ford Motor Company in between 1900-1920. Numerous homes were designed and constructed for the upper level managers and their families in and around Dearborn. The homes are a-symetrical and have a simular theme expressed in all colors.
One of the new riders to the group was saddled with a leaky valve on his back tire. This particular tire was not a quick connect/dissconnect so after 2 shots of CO2 the group decided to break off early and do better next time. I look forward to next years tour, (hopefully with a scheduled rain day alternative) so that I may learn more about this amazing city that is hidden north and South of the Michigan Ave cooridore.
