The Ambassador Bridge will be shut down to vehicle traffic briefly on Sunday morning to allow cyclists to take part in the annual Bike the Bridge ride.

The bridge will close to traffic at 9 a.m. and be shut down for about 15 minutes to allow 750 registered cyclists to ride across the bridge to the Detroit side and back.

It’s the only time during the year where cyclists are allowed on the Detroit River international crossing under a ride sponsored by the Tour de Troit group.

Advance registration has already filled all available spots for the ride.

Riders will gather at Assumption Park in Windsor at 7 a.m. in preparation, then cross the bridge at 9 a.m., before undertaking a 20-mile ride through the Windsor area which also concludes at Assumption Park.bridge_-_141-bikes-3from Windsor Star
