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 (CRUISERS) $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've even developed a self-guided tour you can ride on your own! Check it out on the Movement Blog HERE.
We also offer a techno-themed tour that delves into Detroit’s epic electronic music history.
The tour will be on Monday, May 26 from Noon until 4 p.m. It's about 16 miles, and takes 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.
If you are on Facebook, you can check out a great album of photos taken on one of previous Long Tours. As you can see, the stop at Underground Resistance HQ is pretty amazing.
We are also offering a Music Heritage tour on Saturday at noon that will cover not just techno, but Motown, punk, soul, rock and many of the city’s historic venues.
If you are looking for a break from music altogether, we are offering our popular Auto Heritage Tour on Saturday at noon. It includes a stop at the Packard Plant and the Model T-Plex, and offers a great overview of the industry.
You can register for any of of these tours here. Most of our tours sell out, so don’t wait too long!
Looking forward to seeing you at the Wheelhouse over Memorial Day weekend!
