 Hey y'all!
The CMWC Chicago pre-event in Detroit (July 28 and 29, with a lil somethin' for those in town the 27th) is rockin and rollin: http://detroit2012.com/
Registration is FREE, just bring a bike tool or tube when you come to check in, to be donated to community partner the Hub of Detroit (http://thehubofdetroit.org/). 
Detroit organizers Joey Landis (of Rock Dove Couriers) and Joe Aasim are both a part of this group. You'll note that both the Hub's website and the detroit2012 website do not have alot of sponsor logos. There're a number of reasons why that is. For one, the Detroit community has experiencedextreme capitalism first hand--and is developing models of exchange that break away from it. 
Detroit is about the experience--and who you share it with. 
We hope to share that experience with you.
Ride safe-- and thank you.

PS> Group ride to Chicago after is a (micro-beer) brew tour. :-)
