We are about the love, benefits, art, events, food, culture, and all the lovely people we meet because of bikes from here in our cycle city and beyond.

On this weeks show we have…

Slow Roll Detroit Co-Founder Mike MacKool and Executive Chairman Jeff Herron talking about the history and how this Slow Roll Detroit tree has grown beyond Detroit.

Slow Roll is a weekly bike ride dedicated to promoting cycling in the City of Detroit. Slow Roll is continually contributing to the growth of bicycle culture in the City with a goal to further bicycling not only as a health initiative, but also to help improve Detroit’s image in order to repopulate it.

Slow Roll Code of Conduct

  1. Stay Right - ALWAYS leave the left lane open for cars and the SQUAD to get through. It is safer and just more respectful to others on the road. There will be times where we can’t, but mostly we can.
  2. Communicate - Shout out signals, stops, turns, passing, glass, obstructions, etc. There are others around you at all times, so let them know what’s up.
  3. Stick Together - If you see a gap forming, ride a lil faster to keep the group together.
  4. Stay Alert
  5. Don’t Litter - Littering is not acceptable, if you see someone litter, make them pick it up. We show respect for our city.
  6. Encourage Positivity - Negative or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated on Slow Roll.
  7. Respect - Treat everyone and everywhere we go with R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
  8. Be Prepared - Have a spare tube for flats, bring water, a helmet and be prepared for 2+ hrs of riding that ends in the dark, so bring a light kit.
  9. Have Fun
  10. Make Friends
  11. Corking - We have a team of CORKERS that will handle this. We do NOT block cars unless critical to the safety of the ride.
  12. Wear A Helmet - It’s just the safest way to ride.
  13. Is My Music Too Loud? - You like music, we like music, but please make sure people can still communicate.
  14. Roll Slow - THIS IS NOT A RACE. Stay behind the leader at all times.
