Detroit Bikes is transforming America's car capital into a bike town

Natalia Angulo-Hinkson of Circa stopped by the Detroit Bikes factory to learn more about what we do, test drive our bikes and talk about manufacturing in the United States and specifically, Detroit. 

Henry Ford II is the head of assembly at Detroit Bikes. He has deep roots in the Motor City and his family is known around town as the "other Ford family" because at one point, at least 10 members of his family worked for the iconic car maker, he told to Circa.

A former banking professional, he lost his job after the 2008 Recession. For years after that, he gave bike tours to tourists and locals, which is how Ford found his way to Detroit Bikes.

"For years, we were known as the Motor City," Ford said. "With the resurgence of biking that's really exploded around Detroit, that name is transitioning to Bike City."
