DETROIT, MI -- It wasn't quite as flashy or busy as the Detroit Auto Show, but the sentiment is the same.

More than 2,000 people visited the Detroit Bike City Expo at Cobo Hall in Detroit Saturday to celebrate bikes. There were vintage restorations, conceptual "human-powered vehicles," chromed frames, fat tires, a bike swing for practicing tricks, a social bike ridden by multiple people facing each other, tandems, scooters and the newest clothing and bikes from companies throughout Detroit and beyond.

Jason Hall and Mike MacKool, co-founders of the Slow Roll, a casual weekly ride through the city that has become astronomically popular, drawing as many as 1,700 each week, organized the expo now in its third year.

MacKool said the Auto Show is the inspiration behind the bike expo and why they chose Cobo Center as the venue.

He said the goal was to have the expo at Cobo by year five, but they completed that feat the fist year.

The event is a kickoff to bicycling season and part of a series of events going on this weekend.

After the expo Saturday, a party featuring Guilty Simpson and Detroit -based punk band the Suicide Machines was planned at Shed 3 of Eastern Market beginning at 7 p.m.

The first Slow Roll of the year departs Eastern Market's Shed 2 at 11 a.m. Sunday. MacKool said "rolls" will then be held weekly on Monday evenings beginning April 7.
