All-Volunteer "Mower Gang" Restores Public Spaces in Detroit
August 12, 2010, 5am PDT
The Dorais Velodrome is a bike race track in Detroit that has been abandoned and allowed to return to nature. "The Mower Gang", whose slogan is, "Winning Detroit's Other Turf War", set out with their weedwackers to restore it.
Over the course of one day, The Mower Gang volunteers managed to clear most of the overgrowth and create a bikeable path again.
