Detroit the Bike City?

Here is an interesting article in a German magazine about Detroit’s development from motor city to bike city. Having ridden the tour d’troit last year, I can confirm that it actually is a great city for biking with lots of interesting things going on around biking: http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/soziales/detroit-wandelt-sich-von-der-autostadt-zur-fahrradmetropole-a-912873.html – If you are interested also check out the guided tours offered by the Wheelhouse and the organized rides by tour d’troit.
