Are you ready for North American Bicycle Week in Detroit?! We sure are. For those of you that have been living under a rock, Detroit's very own Jason Hall starred in last years ipad commercial showcasing Detroit in a way that most people have never seen and displaying how he used his secret Apple weapon to organize and launch Slow Roll into an epic demonstration of who we are in Detroit. Slow Roll since inception has gone from a few people getting together to ride bikes on Monday nights into a Global network of community rides with over 150 counties in line. Each week Slow Roll meets at different venues throughout Detroit and takes a unique route throughout the city, including all the major and minor neighborhoods to show off our city.
