Corktown recently got some brand new bike lanes as part of a program funded by the Kresge Foundation. Along the path you'll also find brand new bike racks at some great places to check out and/or eat and have a drink at (they're not all in yet, but on their way). This is a bike tour of the places with racks (or soon-to-be racks :-)).
Welcome to the largest historic public market district in the United States. You'll eat, you'll shop, take some photos, and go home happy and take a well-deserved nap. Start this tour before 9AM if you want the best selection of stuff, or start later for the best selection of people-watching.
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."
Home to the cycloFox (resident red fox often see during cyclocross events) Historic Fort Wayne is a must-see. It is also conveniently located near some of the best authentic Mexican food you will find in Michigan, which you will need after exploring the site.
A fast (less than 2 hours), diverse driving tour of different icons, landmarks, and neighborhood types around the core of the city. Designed to quickly give you a sense of different Detroit landscapes. Keep your eyes peeled between locations!
