DETROIT — It's been a year since Jason Hall left Slow Roll Detroit, the nonprofit he co-founded with Mike MacKool in 2010-11 to host weekly bike rides in and near Detroit. The Monday evening rides had grown to include 5,000 or more bicyclists each week and been replicated by several other U.S. cities by the time Hall left. He'd been featured in a minute-long Apple iPad commercial that highlighted his work with Slow Roll and the city of Detroit in 2014. And as part of the promotion, Apple s...

But they haven’t really tried it out for themselves,” Capela said. “Others think it’s weird, because nobody does that anymore.” Even fewer kids his age understand Capela’s dedication: six days a week at the L...
