What to expect from a Wheelhouse E-Blast

  1. We only send out one a month.
  2. We promote our business with sales and info about tours, while also touting other area rides.
  3. We aim to not be boring.

Check out our September E-Blast below the jump and, if you like what you see, sign up at wheelhousedetroit.com.

Hello there, Friend of Wheelhouse!

I know we're a few days early, but we are really excited for September to get here. Why is that? Great cycling weather and our favorite day of the year, Tour de Troit! It's on for September 25 and you can find info and a link to register at tour-de-troit.org. You should do so by the 7th to get a t-shirt. We also need a lot of volunteers -- since we are planning on 3,500 riders! -- and info about signing up can be found here. And check out the sweet event poster here!

Sales! There is a ton of construction around here, enough that we know it's been hard to come visit us for the last few weeks. So we're having an Orange Cones and Barricades Sale! Come down for specials on bikes: $250 off the Honky Tonk road bike, $100 off the must-ride-to-believe Jake cyclocross and $30 off all other bikes in stock, including the bada** Humu! Check out all of our fine specimens at our blog's Bikes for Sale page. We're also offering 15% off locks, helmets, racks & baskets. The sale runs until September 15, and we hope that it makes it worth navigating the dust to come see us!

We are also offering a fall tune-up special: $40 for the whole she-bang -- that's a tenner off the regular price. So drop your steed off to get it in shape for the Tour de Troit and all your other autumn riding!

Tours While our tour season is slowing down, there are still plenty of chances to ride with us. We have a handful of openings on both of our tours this weekend, Gallery Scene Friday night at 5:30 p.m. and Arts Incubators on Sunday at noon.

Labor Day weekend, we'll head to Southwest Detroit at 10 a.m. on Saturday 09/05 and celebrate our Industrial Heritage at 2 p.m. on Sunday 09/06. The rest of the month, we'll take on Architecture and Urban Agriculture and wrap up in October with Conner Creek Greenway, Eastern Market, Underground Railroad and Haunted Detroit!

Read more and register at our Tours Page. We also offer private group tours and special discounts for groups of six to 20. Give us a call at 313-656-2453 and we'll set something up!

TONIGHT! Critical Mass & Walk-In Theatre Friday night 08/27 is the monthly edition of Critical Mass, which starts at 6:30 p.m. at the corner of Warren and Trumbull. Afterwards, we are partnering with Walk-In Theatre to present a double feature with two of our favorite two-wheeled films: TRON and Breaking Away! Join us at dusk:thirty at Peck Park, located at the corner of Beaubien and East Kirby, behind CCS. There will even be a s'more station! Check out the flyer for more info here.

Yoga+Jazz+Vote+Ride A few final miscellanea: Saturday 08/28 at 3 p.m. is Yoga for Cyclists at Spirit of Hope Church in North Corktown. More info at peoplesyogadetroit.org.

We will be manning bike parking at this year's Detroit Jazz Fest. So if you come down to Hart Plaza, we'll keep an eye on your bike gratis!

Tuesday, 08/31 is the deadline to Vote 4 the Best Bike Shop on the WDIV Click on Detroit site. Cast one for your very own little bike shop that could, Wheelhouse, at cityvoter.com. Thanks!

There are a couple of other fund-raising rides this month we'd like to direct your attention to: 09/12, the Tour de Ford, which has two routes that both stop at Henry Ford Hospital in New Center, and 09/18, PEAC's Celebration of Cycling, which rides along the always-lovely Hines Drive.

Sincerely, Your Friends at Wheelhouse Detroit
