Detroit – the Automobile Capital of the world – also has a remarkable and exciting story to tell when it comes to commuting on two wheels or two legs. The city is quickly becoming more walkable, bikeable, and connected. In fact, the Detroit Greenways Coalition has a 50-year vision in place to develop Detroit into the Greenways Capital of the World, and the city is off to a strong start with the recent designation of best Riverwalk in the country. Says Todd Scott, executive director of the Detroit Greenways Coalition, “We have a long-term vision to connect every neighborhood in the city so that it’s easier and safer to travel without a vehicle. This includes designated and safe bike lanes on the roads as well as Greenways.
