DETROIT - A bicycle tour is offering the chance to ride over the Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario.

More than 180 participants are registered for Sunday's "Bike the Bridge" event that begins in Detroit.

Planned stops in Canada include breakfast at Mic Mac Park and tours that commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812.

One group will ride to Fort Malden and explore historic Amherstburg. Another group will travel along the Riverfront Trail, while learning about significant sites in Windsor pertaining to the War of 1812.

Riders will cross back into the United States in the afternoon.

 Registration for the bicycle tour was required ahead of time for the event because of the border crossing.
