        August 19th, Downtown D, Bike Level

It's one of the best things about summer in Detroit, a slow Sunday morning with no-one else on the road. Hitting the streets just after dawn you can spend an hour or so biking around without seeing a another soul. Just the buildings gliding by and whatever track the iPod's playing at random. Here's how it looks ...

A small bulk carrier makes its way up-river, the dawn light turning everything to rust.

Then left onto Cadillac with the Penobscot looming in front and Campus Martius ahead.
OK - there's at least 2 people on sidewalks here ... but you get the picture.
