The ride

The Baroudeur offers three routes to accommodate riders of all experience levels. Ranging from 20 miles all the way up to the urban century ride of 100 miles, the Baroudeur will take you past some of Detroit and Southeast Michigan's most iconic sights and landmarks.

Safety is our top priority. Please remember that the Baroudeur is an open road course, so cyclists will be riding with vehicular traffic and must obey traffic laws. All cyclists are required to wear a helmet. To help ensure your safety on ride day, there will be course marshals, directional signage, police patrols and sweepers on each route.
