Just TWO more Night Rides on the Towpath Trail left for the season 
Our 2014 season of Night Rides on the Towpath Trail
comes to a close after this month. Thanks to everyone who joined us for our 20th anniversary season! 

Our final two rides this year are: 
  • Saturday, September 13, 2014
  • Saturday, September 27, 2014

As always, the rides begin promptly at 8:00pm from the parking lot of the Peninsula store. Plan to arrive earlier to have time to park and get yourself and your bike ready! Helmets and headlights are required. The store will be open before the ride starts in case you need any last-minute help or supplies.

New for 2014: NEOCycle!
NEOCycle is Cleveland's new urban cycling festival, coming on September 26 through 28, consisting of competitive races and unique rides, connected by live entertainment and an interactive, action-filled festival at Cleveland Metroparks Edgewater Park on the shores of Lake Erie.

Look for Century Cycles at the festival, plus we'll be providing SAG support for the Forest City Fundo ride, which benefits Bike Cleveland, our local cycling advocacy organization!
Take our latest online poll

September 2014 online poll image The Cleveland Metroparks opened their first mountain bike trail in the Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation a little over five years ago. They followed that up with the Royalview Trail in the Mill Stream Run Reservation in 2012. This year saw the opening of the Bedford Singletrack, and more is on the way!

These new trails have brought mountain biking closer to a larger number of people than ever before in Northeast Ohio, with many trying the sport out for the first time on these new trails.

How has your mountain biking changed with the new trails available in the Cleveland Metroparks? Let us know by taking our latest online poll!

Our last poll asked, "How do you feel about electric bicycles?" A majority of responses (52%) said "I would be curious to try one." That was closely followed (31%) by "No way, not ever; bikes should only be human-powered." You can see the full results of the last poll here.
