Since the year 1955, the NSO (Neighborhood Service Organization) has been providing useful services to the people of Detroit. The main aim of NSO is to ensure that families and neighborhoods are empowered and needy people are strengthened in an efficient way. NSO has created many programs which have attracted a lot of national and international attention.
On the 17th of August, 2014, the NSO is organizing a cycling event called Handlebars for the Homeless which is going to start and end at the Bell Building of NSO which is situated at 882 Oakman Blvd. (Detroit). The ride will start at around 10am and will be wrapped up by around 12pm.
The cyclists taking part in this noble cycling event are going to pass through some of the most excellent neighborhoods of Detroit like University of Detroit-Mercy, Sherwood Forest, Boston Edison and Palmer Park.
According to David Rudolph (organizer and founder of Handlebars for the Homeless), bicyclists are people who can really see the world of reality and understand the needs of the homeless people because car owners just pass by the homeless people without even realizing it.
Rudolph is aware of the fact that Slow Roll is more attractive to people since it is free. But he is sure that people will realize the importance of Handlebars for the Homeless and land up in huge numbers on Sunday in order to be a part of this righteous endeavor.
Those who will ride for this noble cause can be assured of the fact that around twenty thousand homeless people who reside in Detroit are going to receive some help from their contribution.
Riders belonging to varied age groups are welcome to the event and registration fee is just thirty dollars. Refreshments and free Handlebars for the Homeless T-shirts will be provided to each of the participants.
