About the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy
The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) organization with a vision to transform Detroit’s riverfront and the face of the city into a beautiful, exciting, safe, and world-class meeting place. The ultimate vision is to have five-and-a-half miles of elaborate greenways extending from the Ambassador Bridge to Gabriel Richard Park.
The first phase of the Detroit waterfront transformation project begins with the east riverfront, transforming three-and-a-half miles from the historic Joe Louise Arena to the beautiful and serene Gabriel Richard Park. The transformation also includes three new eco-friendly pathways along the west riverfront linking up to West Jefferson Avenue. The RiverWalk is expanding immensely, adding 30-feet of extra space to enhance pedestrian recreational activity.
The Dequindre Cut is known for its urban artwork, graffiti and a greenway with a 20-foot-wide paved pathway, that has separate lanes for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. To get to the Dequindre Cut entrance ramps are placed at Atwater Street, Franklin Street, Lafayette Street, Gratiot Avenue and at Woodbridge Street. Phase two of the Cut is now in progress to extend the greenway a half mile north from Gratiot Avenue to Mack Avenue.
Motor City Gears and Beers is proud to donate a portion of ride proceeds to help perpetuate the astounding efforts of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy.
