A New Bicycle Utopia in Detroit

As part of NYT’s Home Economics series, author and blogger Toby Barlow writes about the potential for Detroit to become a new bicycle utopia.
“And lately, whether it’s because of the economy or the price of gas or just because it’s a nice thing to do, there are a lot more bikers out riding.”
Detroit’s bike culture is growing with the help of the Wheelhouse Detroit and the Hub of Detroit.
Last month, we wrote about New Urbanism and flipping car dealerships to bike shops. Also see a bank becoming a bike shop.
Maybe that Utopia fantasy will become a reality.
