Road Warrior Tour - 2018 presidential cycling journey - Wayne State University

Last year, Wayne State University President M. Roy Wilson embarked on a maiden cycling journey: a three-city, four-day Road Warrior cycling tour that took him to three Michigan cities in four days, pedaling more than 400 miles. In each community, there was a chance for local citizens to meet the president, learn more about Wayne State and share their perspectives and outlooks. This year the journey continues: beginning July 23 the president will cycle to Marshall, MI. On July 24, he and his cycling team will travel to Holland. From there, they will cycle to Owosso, and then to Imlay City. On July 27, the group will return to Wayne State’s campus, having cycled more than 500 miles in five days. In each city, Wilson will again host a reception at a local restaurant where community members can gather to learn more about Wayne State, which is celebrating its sesquicentennial this year. The receptions will be held at the following locations: July 23 (Marshall): Dark Horse Brewing Co., 5:30 to 7 p.m. July 24 (Holland): New Holland Brewing, 5:30 to 7 p.m. July 25 (Owosso): Wrought Iron Grill, 5:30 to 7 p.m. July 26 (Imlay City): Hiram’s Tavern, 5:30 to 7 p.m. http://roadwarrior.wayne.edu/ SUBSCRIBE: https://go.wayne.edu/subscribe About Wayne State University: Wayne State University (WSU) is a public research university located in Detroit, Michigan.
