One of the cool things going on in Detroit is Slow Roll Detroit, which takes place every Monday night in the less than zero months.(first 2016 one is scheduled for the end of April) Enormous groups of bike riders (sometimes up to 3000) make various excursions through Detroit, with different treks planned each week. Along the way, the riders, and they are all ages, talk about Detroit and what issues they might become involved in. This is about community. For more information, go here.

Do you have anything like this where you live?

Patti, this sounds like fun and a road picnic, and a nice way to do service to community. In Bombay, some NGOs have introduced a "no vehicles on Sundays" campaign, which is usually restricted to main roads in a couple of suburbs at a time. People of all ages come out on the road and participate in a wide range of creative activities.

This does sound great, Patti. Thanks for sharing!

In a city that large, Prashant, that must be a good idea. Give people a sense of their neighbors.
