Slow Roll Rides Through The District Detroit

Detroit Slow Roll will be rolling through The District Detroit on Monday, August 29 for their weekly nighttime bike ride, which kicks off from the Masonic Temple Detroit at 6:30 p.m. Everyone that wants to get a two-wheeled look at Detroit’s neighborhoods—including Cass Park Village—is welcome.

Remember to light up your bike and wear your ball gown or tuxedo as this ride’s theme is Prom Night. After the Slow Roll, a prom party will be held at Masonic Temple Detroit for the nearly 7,000 riders expected to take part—and a prom king and queen will be chosen from the group.

Slow Roll is one of the largest weekly bike rides in the world and it takes place in Detroit every Monday night in the summer and fall. This week, riders will take a police-escorted route along Cass Avenue through The District Detroit before taking a loop in Southwest Detroit, then returning to Masonic Temple Detroit at the corner of Second Avenue and Temple Street.

Slow Roll organizer Jason Hall has grown the event from just a small group to thousands of weekly riders from all over Metro Detroit and the world who want to see Detroit up-close and get a little exercise in the process.

“We want to show Detroit in a positive light as a viable place to live,” said Hall. “We get people from all over and it breaks down barriers so people can see each other a little differently.”
