This Saturday Downtown Flint will be flooded with bicycles as people take to the bricks for the 2014 HealthPlus TOUR DE CRIM. The Tour De Crim is a casual bike challenge that takes riders out along ten miles of the Crim course, following the blue line from Downtown Flint, through some of the college district, over towards Miller Road, and then back downtown for the finish. Along the course will be set up several optional obstacles where riders must complete challenges before taking to their wheels and hitting the road again. The focus of the event is fun and that is exactly what is planned as the strange, wonderful, ridiculous and outrageous are encouraged in both fashion and ride. One of the things that makes the Tour de Crim so much fun is the incorporation of obstacles into the ride and this year they’ll include limboing, hay bale climbing, rope ladders, balance beams, and many, many more challenges that promise to put you throug your paces. The fun extends well past the race though as there are even more games afterwards in the Flat Lot as well as contests for the most classic bike, best decorated bike, and most creative costumes and all of it will be set to a soundtrack provided by live bands sponsored by Red Ink/Flint Local 432.
This Saturday you and your friends can hit the road and ride the blue line as you laugh your way through all the obstacles and fun and then head back to the Flat Lot in Downtown Flint and enjoy an adult beverage, some music, and share the stories of the day’s strange adventures. Whether you are looking for a casual ride or something with a little more spirited the Tour de Crim promises to get you out and moving and having an absolute blast. The Tour de Crim begins promptly at 11AM on Saturday and registration is still open.
