August 1: Get Your Bike, and Take a Slow Roll Through South Milwaukee

slow-roll-2

I just heard about the concept of “Slow Rolls,” and I’m happy to see one is coming to South Milwaukee.

From organizer James Davies: “Join us for a short (4 mile) bike ride through South Milwaukee. Short safe riding guidelines and minor bike repair from 5:00pm to 5:30pm.”

The ride begins at 6 p.m. from Avenue Coffeehouse, 911 Milwaukee Ave.

More details on the Faceook event page, and more information on what the concept looked like in Detroit here. From the Detroit site …

Slow Roll is for everyone; all ages, all skill levels and every type of bike is welcome. Our slow pace keeps the group safe and gives riders a unique perspective of our great city and its neighborhoods. Slow Roll is far more than just a bike ride, in its 7th year, this unique nonprofit brings together thousands of people from all over the region during 25 weekly bike rides a year to discover more about our city and each other. 

In 2016, Slow Roll grew to over 12,000 registered riders and that number continues to increase. In 2017, Slow Roll is focusing on continuing to educate people about Detroit, engage riders with local businesses and charities, and create the cohesive and peaceful community we all strive for. 

We believe that Slow Roll is transforming Detroit through exercise, education, experiences, and community. 

Let’s do it here!

    Hi mayor brooks, would it be a good idea to renovate the mill pond house and add a coffee shop or restaurant there?
