DETROIT (AP) - Wayne State University is bringing back a Detroit cycling event designed to raise scholarship money for students in financial need for second year.

“The Baroudeur” noncompetitive ride takes place Aug. 20 and will include rides of 25, 62 or 100 miles through the city. The Detroit school says Thursday that registration is open for the second annual event. More than 1,000 riders participated in 2015 and there are 2,000 slots this year.

The event was inspired in part by Wayne State President M. Roy Wilson’s passion for cycling. He took on the 100-mile route last year.
