PODCAST: Co-founder Jason Hall on the growth and evolution of Slow Roll Detroit

The good folks from Slow Roll Detroit stopped by this week’s Daily Detroit Happy Hour Podcast to talk about what’s new as mass bike-ride phenomenon, which regularly draws thousands of riders and an incredibly rich array of socioeconomic and racial diversity, enters its seventh season.

Co-founder Jason Hall and Kelsey Hubbell, his multi-talented right-hand woman, talk about how Slow Roll has evolved over time, the unusual way the organization is becoming a nonprofit business organization and how Slow Roll is “like summer camp” where romance occasionally blossoms.

“This has really been the idea that forced me to throw away any idea of money or finance and just follow my heart and passion and I think that’s really a testament to why it’s been so successful I think,” says Hall, a self-described former punk rock kid. “I’ve really not paid attention to things that most business owners would consider a success or non-success.”
