Michigan

Michigan is a hidden gem for bicyclists. The state hosts the country’s largest mountain bike race and the country’s largest dirt road race. Urban centers like Detroit and Grand Rapids have developed strong cycling cultures, the middle of the state has miles of open country roads, and northern Michigan offers rolling hills with lake views. Yet, with its roots as the automobile capitol of the world, Michigan has ignored alternative forms of transportation and ranks last in per capita funding for road maintenance.

Representation in Michigan bicycle accident cases

For help with a Michigan bicycle accident, turn to Michigan Bike Law attorney Bryan Waldman. You'll be represented by an experienced legal professional who is also an accomplished cyclist. In fact, Bryan is the author of the Legal Handbook for Michigan Cyclists.
