AEO-SCA “Reclaim the Outdoors” in Detroit

SCA/American Eagle Event in Detroit

Rouge Park Mountain Bike Trail, Detroit, MI
Sunday, October 3, 10am-2pm

EVENT RECAP: Event was a huge success with approximately 30 participants from SCA, the Michigan Mountain Bike Association and the Hub (a local community bike shop in Detroit)! The location was at Rouge Park’s Mountain Bike trail, a two-mile loop along the Rouge River in Northwest Detroit. The day ended with trail riding and a yummy cookout!

Participants and volunteers alike commented on the event being well organized. The MMBA folk were especially thankful for the incredibly valuable and challenging work our youth accomplished over the course of the day.
