We have a busy week ahead, so we wanted to make sure we got the word out about what is keeping us running around like crazy people!
This Saturday, we have the ever-popular Hamtramck tour. We’ll be stopping at Hamtramck Disneyland, the Power House, Public Pool Gallery, Polish Art Center and, for a snack, Cafe 1923. The tour is led by Wheelhouse co-owner (and former Hamtramck resident & schoolteacher!) Kelli Kavanaugh and guided by Jason Friedmann, Hamtramck’s community & economic development director. The ride takes off at 10 a.m. There are 5 spots remaining as of Tuesday, May 11, so reservations are highly recommended.
Next up, we have Farm to Fork, our urban agriculture tour, on Tuesday, May 19 at 5:30 p.m. This one is ked by Kido Pielack, the Greening of Detroit’s urban agriculture education coordinator. This will be a great opportunity to engage with farms and gardens growing food, ride the streets the food travels, and experience the spaces where food reaches consumer’s forks. As of Tuesday, May 11, there are 9 spaces remaining.
We also have a private tour of Detroit’s breweries for a group of friends on Sunday, May 17 and a sold-out tour of Eastern Market on May 22. We will likely be adding more Eastern Market tours to our roster. You can view our entire schedule and register for any tour at wheelhousedetroitcom.tours.
Also next week, we have the annual Ride of Silence. This event is an international, silent, slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. We’ll take off from Scott fountain on Belle Isle at 7 p.m., so get there a bit early to sign a waiver and such.
