One of our favorite weekends of the year is the Movement Electronic Music Festival held over Memorial Day weekend. We love to get as many visitors onto a bike as possible, as we truly believe it is the best way to see the city. To that end, we are offering discounts to anyone wearing a Movement festival wristband all weekend long. So whether you are looking for a quick ride to Eastern Market for lunch, a trip to Belle Isle for a swim, or want a bike for transportation the entire weekend, we've gotcha covered!
MOVEMENT FESTIVAL-GOER RENTAL RATES $10/2 hours (reg. $15) $18/half-day/4 hours (reg. $25) $25/full day (reg. $35) $40/2 days (reg. $50) $60/3 days (reg. $75) $75/full week (reg. $99)
You can call 313-656-2453 to reserve a bike at these rates.
We also offer a couple of techno-themed tours that delve into Detroit's epic electronic music history.
The first tour will be on Sunday, May 27 from noon to 4 p.m. It will be the “long” tour that will go for as many as 21 miles, taking riders past historic electronic music sites like The Music Institute, Underground Resistance HQ, and the Packard Plant. The tour price is $30; with bike rental, it’s $40. This “long” tour is recommended for more experienced riders.
The second tour will be Monday, May 28 from noon until 3 p.m. It will be the “short” tour. A rider will see landmarks such as The Music Institute, Underground Resistance HQ, and the East Riverfront Warehouse District. The tour price is $25; with bike rental, it’s $35.
If you are on Facebook, you can check out a great album of photos taken at last year's Long Tour. As you can see, the stop at Underground Resistance HQ was pretty amazing.
We do offer a tour of Southwest Detroit on Saturday and one of Detroit's Public Art on Sunday if you are interested in experiencing other aspects of the city. You can register for any of them at wheelhousedetroit.com/tours. In 2011, most of our tours sold out, so don't wait too long!
Looking forward to seeing you at the Wheelhouse over Memorial Day weekend!
