Wayne State University announced today that it will once again host its urban cycling event, The Baroudeur, to raise scholarship dollars for students in financial need. The second annual Baroudeur will take place on Wayne State’s Midtown campus on Aug. 20, 2016. This year, participants can choose to ride 25, 62 or 100 miles through Detroit. Registration is now open.
The Baroudeur was inspired by WSU President M. Roy Wilson’s passion for cycling and his commitment to providing all qualified students access to higher education.
The $50 registration fee for The Baroudeur includes refreshments along the route, lunch after the ride, two tickets for Michigan craft beers, a limited edition T-shirt, ride support and free parking. All net proceeds will directly assist economically disadvantaged students at Wayne State.
