    Registration for Wayne State's cycling event, "The Baroudeur" is now open! The Baroudeur is a fun, noncompetitive event that gives riders of all abilities an opportunity to explore Detroit and surrounding area on two wheels while helping economically disadvantaged students pursue higher education. The Baroudeur offers three routes to accommodate riders of all experience levels. Ranging from 20 miles all the way up to the 100 mile century ride, The Baroudeur will take you to some of Detroit and Southeast Michigan's most iconic sights and landmarks. Baroudeur means fighter or warrior in French. It is a term used in cycling for riders not afraid to break away from the peloton and do things on their own, even if they might be an underdog. In Paul Fournel's collection of cycling essays, Vélo, he describes baroudeurs as "adventurers, opportunists and chancers. They do not seek the love of their colleagues in the peloton, but strain at the leash, pushing against convention, experimenting and taking risks. They are generalists and polymaths, adept at multiple disciplines." Read more about The Baroudeur in the directory.
