NSO Handlebars for the Homeless 

Handlebars for the Homeless (HH) is a guided bike tour supporting the programs and services of Neighborhood Service Organization (NSO).  NSO Homeless Recovery Services' three programs focus on ending homelessness by working to move individuals off the streets and into a home.

By supporting HH, you will be helping NSO change lives!

The tour will begin and end at the NSO Bell Building on Oakman Blvd. (the former Michigan Bell Building). The approximately 16-mile tour will take participants through some of Detroit’s most beautiful areas including the campus of University of Detroit-Mercy, Sherwood Forest and Boston Edison neighborhoods, Palmer Park and more. 

We hope you’ll join us!

All participants will be entered into a drawing to Detroit's most sought after bike from Detroit Bikes.
