The 27th Annual Midnight Bike Tour of Detroit

September 18, 2015

More than 200 University of Detroit Mercy students on bicycles are expected to participate in the 27th Annual Midnight Bicycle Tour of Detroit on Friday, Sept. 18  at 8 p.m.

UDM faculty, staff and students will begin the approximately 20-mile round trip tour in Parking Lot A, near the Fisher Administration Center on the McNichols Campus. Escorting the students will be members of UDM Public Safety Department.

The bike tour includes rest stops to point out places of interest and a hot dog break at Detroit's famous Lafayette Coney Island. The cyclists should return to campus around midnight on Saturday morning.

"The bike ride has become one of our student’s favorite ways of kicking off the school year," said Andrew Peters, assistant director of student life-student activities. "Each ride picks up more momentum from both faculty and students. This is an excellent opportunity for new students to see Detroit and even native Detroiters to see our city from an entirely different perspective, at night."

Registered UDM students can participate for free and non-UDM students can participate for $20.
