An interesting and diverse route that explores the Metro Detroit area. Starting in Wixom then heading North and East to Jefferson Ave, we then follow the lake to Belle Isle where we take a loop on the Island we continue following the river to Grose Isle where take a look at Canada. We continue by going through the Lower Huron Metro Parks. Ann Arbor, then Chelsea, before we head north to Pinckney, then East to Whitmore Lake before heading back. An APC certified Brevet.

Please make a food/beverage stop in Detroit and Ypsilanti or Ann Arbor area as there are no controls in thse areas

While riding between sunset and sunrise and during other low-light conditions (rain, fog, etc.), a set of working front and rear lights must be firmly mounted on the vehicle and turned on.  At least one of the rear lights must be in a steady (rather than flashing) mode. The lights must meet the requirements of local laws. Backup lighting systems and/or spare bulbs are strongly recommended in case the primary system fails and cannot be repaired on the roadside.

Between sunset and sunrise and during other low-light conditions, all riders must wear a reflective vest or some other device that clearly places significant reflective material on the front and back of the rider. During these times all riders will also wear a reflective ankle band around each ankle. (Due to their seating position, recumbent riders may modify their reflective torso devices to show better from front and rear.) Other reflective devices on clothing, shoes, helmets, and machines are encouraged for increased safety - but they are extra and may not take the place of the minimum items listed above. Riders must review the RUSA Reflectivity Guide and are strongly encouraged to meet the recommended minimum standards for torso reflectivity described in that document.

Regardless of whether or not an RBA or ride organizer conducts a gear/equipment inspection at the start of a ride, failure to have and display appropriate reflective gear and required lighting may result in an immediate disqualification.
