BENEFITING: BACK ALLEY BIKES
EVENT: Bike the Blizzard 2017
EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2017
This is the FOURTH year I've done this fundraiser. I am immensely grateful for all those of have donated in the past three years. Year One I rode ~125 miles, Year Two 126 (just to outdo myself), Year Three I was unable to ride due to losing our Grandfather.
So here it is, Year Four of Back Alley Bikes' BIKE THE BLIZZARD. My goal is to raise money for this fantastic organization by bicycling my heart out and the cold January streets of Detroit. I'd hope you can support us in our efforts!

Back Alley Bikes is an organization that gets Detroiters on bikes. Bikes are amazing. In a city with horrible public transportation and expensive car insurance bicycles are an empowering way for folks to get around. On a rapidly warming planet bikes are way for folks to get around that doesn't continue to damage our world. And bikes help people get exercise!
Due to the way Detroit is changing, Back Alley has hit a lot of pot holes this year and we're getting ready to write the next chapter in equitable bike culture for Detroit. The money from this fundraiser will ensure that Back Alley is around in the coming year and has the momentum needed to continue for many years to come.
