One of our favorite weekends of the year is theMovement Electronic Music Festival held over Memorial Day weekend. We love to get as many visitors onto a bike as possible, as we truly believe it is the best way to see the city.
To that end, we are offering discounts to anyone wearing a Movement festival wristband all weekend long. So whether you are looking for a quick ride to Eastern Market for lunch, a trip to Belle Isle for a swim, or want a bike for transportation the entire weekend, we’ve gotcha covered!

You can call 313-656-2453 to reserve a bike at these rates. We’ve even developed a self-guided tour you can ride on your own! Check it out on the Movement Blog HERE.
We also offer a techno-themed tour that delves into Detroit’s epic electronic music history.
The tour will be on Monday, May 26 from Noon until 4 p.m. It’s about 16 miles, and takes riders past historic electronic music sites like The Music Institute, Underground Resistance HQ, and the Packard Plant. The tour price is $30; with bike rental, it’s $40. This “long” tour is recommended for more experienced riders.
If you are on Facebook, you can check out a great album of photos taken on one of previous Long Tours. As you can see, the stop at Underground Resistance HQ is pretty amazing.
We are also offering a Music Heritage tour on Saturday at noon that will cover not just techno, but Motown, punk, soul, rock and many of the city’s historic venues.
If you are looking for a break from music altogether, we are offering our popular Auto Heritage Tour on Saturday at noon. It includes a stop at the Packard Plant and the Model T-Plex, and offers a great overview of the industry.
You can register for any of of these tours at wheelhousedetroit.com/tours. Most of our tours sell out, so don’t wait too long!
Looking forward to seeing you at the Wheelhouse over Memorial Day weekend!
