Members Event: Twilight Bike Ride in Greenfield Village @ The Henry Ford | Dearborn | Michigan | United States

Members, gear up for the rare chance to cycle the village after hours at this new member-exclusive evening, made possible thanks to our partners at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Trikes, fixies, cruisers and road bikes are welcome for a guided ride through 300 years of American history.

Celebrate the boundary-breaking bicycle, an invention that drove the building of roads and development of city planning as much as the car. Henry Ford used bicycle technology in his 1896 Quadricycle, and our high-flying heroes, the Wright brothers, even started in the bike business. There’s no better way to experience transportation inspiration than a pedal-powered cruise through Greenfield Village.
The Wheelmen, spirited heritage bike enthusiasts, will be riding alongside you on penny-farthings and other iconic wheels to keep the fun rolling on the route. Plus, we’ll open a few special locations to restore our riders: Frozen Custard, Sir John Bennett Sweet Shop, State Street Lunch Stand and Mrs. Fisher’s will be serving fan favorites for pit stops.

Tickets are limited, so reserve your spot early.

TIPS: Helmets are not required, but their use is strongly encouraged. Since not all riders will choose to wear a helmet, please remember to be careful and courteous around other cyclists, especially those using training wheels. Finally, please walk bikes through the village gate and past the train tracks to the beginning of the route.
