MLK Memorial Bike Ride
January 16 2017 at 9:00 AM
McGregor Memorial Conference Center
Did you know that Martin Luther King, Jr. first delivered his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech in Detroit? Yup, it’s true, and the Tour de Troit has decided to host a bike ride with the hopes of honoring his legacy and the civil rights movement here that was so important nationally. On January 16, 2017 we invite you to join TdT for its 5th annual celebration of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. at a cycling event in the city of Detroit. This is a free ride, but registration is required. Register here or day-of at Wayne State's McGregor Memorial Conference Center between 9-9:30AM. Families are encouraged. Helmets are required. The ride will take off at 10 a.m. After the ride, hot chocolate is being kindly provided by Wayne State University. Our new route this year is approximately 10 miles in length and will feature several historical sites relevant to Dr. King and other local activists that were integral to the March and the impact of the “I Have a Dream” speech delivered at Cobo Arena afterward. Before the ride start, Todd Scott, Tour de Troit board member and Director of the Detroit Greenways Coalition will have a few words in honor of the passing of Ron Scott, a major civil rights advocate and bicycle advocate who participated in the MLK march. The ride will begin and end at McGregor Memorial Conference Center on the campus of Wayne State University. Parking is available on-street (free on the holiday) and at structures PS#2 (Lodge Service Drive S. of Kirby), PS#8 (Forest between Woodward and Cass Ave.) surface lots #32 (at the Law School) and #31 (behind the Faculty Administration Building). Regular rates will apply. Parking information and Campus map can be found here.

January Fit Tour At School of Social Work
January 16 2017 at 12:00 PM
Social Work, School of
The goal is to encourage healthy lifestyle habits. We want to give the Academia and non-student community an opportunity to sample for a month, 2 days per week of physical activity in a group class format. In an attempt to let them see the possible physiological improvements and health benefits from a simple yet consistent plan for physical activity. We offer two classes and informational talks for four weeks in the month on Mondays at 12:00pm, Tuesdays at 12:00pm and Thursdays at 5:30pm. On Mondays it is a 45 minute light aerobic fitness class that employees of your building or other buildings and colleges nearby, may attend on their lunch break. Keeping the class less than an hour and "light" makes it conducive to coming to the class, allowing time to eat while not getting too "sweaty" but going back energized to finish the day.  A stretch and toning/yoga type class on Thursdays at 5:30pm. Trying to encourage new participants to try out the RFC as a result of sampling our awesome classes for the month. We offer the educational talks where one can have lunch and learn while listening and asking questions.
