Back Alley Bikes is holding its 9th annual Bike the Blizzard fundraiser event in Detroit on Saturday, January 16 and Sunday, January 17. Funds raised will go directly to Back Alley Bikes, a non-profit 501(c)3 community bike shop that provides cycling education and services with a focus on youth development, sustainable practices and community access. Maps of local biking trails will be provided to registrants, but they are not required to follow them. Ride wherever you like, even indoors on a stationary bike. Registration is free, but each registrant is required to raise $50 for Back Alley Bikes. For more information, visit bikereg.com.
