Detroit Tigers Opening Day Ride

Opening Day at Comerica Park

Today was opening day for the Detroit Tigers.  With temperatures edging into the fifties and the rain staying north, I rode downtown.

I started by riding past old Tiger Stadium.  The streets and parking lots were full of cars and Tiger tailgators.   Cabs were circling like vultures looking to give rides over to the park.

I headed down Michigan Avenue and made a stop at the Urban Bean Company.  The owner Josh hustled outside as I pulled up so we could talk about my Kona King bike.  He’s got a Kona Chute.  Josh has really gotten the coffee shop going now.  He’s added the cold beverages and baked goods.  He’s got the Tiger’s on TV.  He’s just picked up a hookah.

After a quick coffee and muffin, I rode around and past Comerica Park.  The streets were buzzing with excitement for the upcoming Tiger’s season.

Then, while riding home, I made a quick detour at Holbrook to ride past the striking workers at American Axle in Hamtramck.  I didn’t have a horn to honk for support or even a bike bell — probably a good thing on the latter.  They did  have the Tigers game on the radio.

Unfortunately Detroit ended up one down on Kansas City after 11 innings.

    who knew that just a couple weeks later they’d have the worst record in Baseball… It’s all my fault.. I shouldn’t have left MI… 🙁
