The Story

EVENT DATE: Jan 14, 2018

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jan 21, 2018

This year will be the 6th annual Back Alley bike-a-thon event, Bike the Blizzard. This year we're hoping to raise 20k- more than past years but with our ever enthusiastic riders and supporters we can do it! These funds allow us to keep the doors open during the cold weather months and allow other fundraising efforts to go towards staffing up for the busy summer months. This event allows Back Alley Bikes to stay open year round to provide quality education classes and distribute bikes to children in Detroit. This event, as in years past, is a 24-hour ride-your-legs off endeavor. Riders will raise as much as they can and ride as much as they can. Riders can register, raise, and ride as individuals, or in teams.

Riders will be supported with on-call support vehicles, food, open shop, warming area, and a fun group ride!
