8:30 Sunday September 2, 2012 57 or 96 miles
Circle Cleveland, free – as in beer, fun. Take a lap around Cleveland and experience everything northern Ohio cycling has to offer in one fully unsupported ride. MetroParks west and east through the scenic Rocky River and Chagrin River Valleys. Urban Lakewood and a spectacular Cleveland lakefront skyline view, Cleveland west and east. Lakefront bike path and stately Bratenahl. Check out the Browns tailgaters as we ride through the stadium bound crowds and smell the last whiffs of everything not vegan. Not up for 96 miles take the 57 mile shortcut and enjoy the surprising ride right through the middle of an operating steel mill. With a little luck you’ll get to see the rail tanker cars glowing with the fiery metal they are transporting.
