Bike Trails and Cocktails

This end-of- season event is both a fundraiser for the Detroit Greenways Coalition as well as an opportunity to learn about the progress made to towards our vision of creating a citywide network of biking and walking trails.

The event is Tuesday, October 17th, 2017!

Doors open at 5:30 PM at the Detroit City Distillery Whisky Factory near Eastern Market. Yes, it’s a real whiskey factory!

Tickets are $25 and include a meal from the Comfort Cafe food truck. Detroit City Distillery will have cash bar and is creating four custom cocktails for the event.

The program begins at 6:30pm with:

  • Todd Scott, Detroit Greenways Coalition.  Todd will share details about the many completed Greenway activities impacting Detroit communities and a give a recap of the state of the non-motorized efforts across the region — and where we’re heading.
  • Caitlin Macron, Detroit Planning and Development Department. Cailtin will discuss the new non-motorized plan that describes how Detroit roads will now be designed to accommodate bicycling and walking — and make Detroit America’s #1 bicycling city.
  • Heather Grondin, Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority. Heather will provide the latest updates on the Gordie Howe International Bridge project, including the bike/walk path planned for the bridge and other improvements planned for the streets around the bridge plaza.

This fundraiser will help the Coalition continue its work, while providing all the latest exciting information on trails, bike lanes and much more happening across Detroit. It’ll be an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback, and network — at a whiskey factory!

Thanks for our sponsors for helping make this event possible, not to mention their role in making Detroit a more bikeable and walkable city.

Tickets are available at the door, though we would greatly appreciate it if you purchased them in advance.
