Slow Roll Detroit Opening Day 2017

Slow Roll Detroit is back! Do you like to ride in the Slow Roll? Thousands of Detroiters and people across the metro area sign up every year to participate in the famous city bike ride. According to Slow Roll’s official website, over 12,000 people registered for the 2016 Slow Roll season.

 

What is Slow Roll?

2017 marks Slow Roll’s 7th year! Isn’t that amazing? So what is Slow Roll, you ask?

It is a 25-week bike ride which meets on Mondays and circulates through various neighborhoods throughout the city of Detroit. The nonprofit organization brings many people together and educates them about the city of Detroit. It’s a great way to connect with the community and help build a stronger Detroit.

Monday, May 1, 2017, was opening day for Slow Roll and Good Life Detroit attended the opening day festivities! The opening day event was held at Eastern Market and hundreds of people participated in the event. It was amazing to see so many people excited for the Slow Roll. Bike groups, friends, family, and other bike enthusiasts participated in the opening day Slow Roll. We loved seeing so many smiling faces at the event, and the customized bikes were quite a sight to see!

Here are our favorite photographs we captured of the Slow Roll Detroit Opening Day 2017.
