Here are a few reminders from the Tour de Troit organizers:

  • Helmets are mandatory.
  • Make sure to bring a FILLED water bottle. We will also provide a water source for refueling at the rest area and the finish of the ride.
  • Type 3 e-bikes (with throttle) are not allowed for this event. The TDT is a leisurely 8-12 MPH ride through the city streets. The speed capabilities of the Type 3 E-bike within this ride lead to an unsafe and unmanageable driving situation for both participants and police. They are also not aligned with the mission of the organization or the intent of the ride.
