Inside a Wheelhouse Detroit Tour

Wheelhouse tours are a great way to gain road confidence and explore the city. All of our tours are led by an experienced guide, many of whom are experts in their field.

Kido, who leads the Urban Agriculture tour, is the education coordinator for Keep Growing Detroit, the city's leading advocate for urban farming.

Reg, who leads several of our tours, is a lifelong Detroiter with enthusiasm for the city's history and culture.

Henry, who also leads several of our tours, is a Slow Roll squad member, lead assembler for Detroit Bikes and ride leader for People for Palmer Park's weekly rides.

Marc, who leads our Public Art tour, is an artist and an archivist for the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Francisco is our new Architecture tour guide. He works for the College for Creative Studies and is a self-taught Detroit history junkie.

Mike, who leads our Auto Heritage tour, is a civil engineer whose firm is heavily involved in improving Detroit's non-motorized infrastructure.

Kelli, Wheelhouse's owner and a tour guide for several of our tours, has a background in community development and journalism and has been writing about and researching Detroit history since the mid-1990's.


Wheelhouse tours follow the Rules of the Road, so safety is of the utmost importance. Tours are also staffed by a sweeper, who helps keep the group together and safe and can assist with any mechanical issues.

Our tours are capped at 15 people so expect a personal experience.

Some tours include food others do have a refreshment stop; the descriptions will let you know what to expect.

Wheelhouse tours are experiential, honest, informative and FUN!
