Hub of Detroit: Youth bike ride

by Nora

Last Saturday, August 20th, the bike organization Hub of Detroit had a fundraising event, the “Annual Safe Streets Youth Ride.” For most of the kids in the ride, it was their first time biking around the city; usually, they just bike outside their porch. Some of the children had built their own bike thanks to the Summer workshops of the Hub. The ride (followed by a barbecue) was a precious moment to share with the kids, their parents and friends. When the “Eastside Riders” (and their colleagues – G.M.O.Bs: “Grown Men On bikes”) joined us on their tweaked bikes, the ride became a happy bling-bling & eco-friendly parade! An unusual mix that only Detroit can cater!
