Corktown Bike Lane & Bike Rack Tour

Corktown recently got some brand new bike lanes as part of a program funded by the Kresge Foundation.

This is a bike tour of the places with racks (or soon-to-be racks :-)).

Hamtramck, rock city.

Party afternoon. Hamtramck once had more bars per capita than anywhere in the US, and there are still some great ones. Do this tour on a Friday sometime after 3:00pm and don't plan on doing anything else that day.

An Oddball Day (According To NY Mag)

This tour is copy-and-pasted from NY Mag's Detroit Tour suggestions: http://nymag.com/travel/weekends/detroit/index4.html . And I quote: "Take a break from food tourism and spend a day checking out the city’s renegade public-art scene."
