Pajama Party Night Ride on the Towpath Trail - July 9, 2016

Pajama-clad bicyclists riding the Towpath Trail
Our most popular Night Ride event is BACK! On Saturday, July 9, our regularly-scheduled Night Ride on the Towpath Trail will be transformed into a rolling Pajama Party!

The free event festivities begin at 7:00pm with cycle-your-own-smoothies and glow-in-the-dark goodies in the parking lot of the Century Cycles store in Peninsula. Pajama-clad bicyclists will depart on the Night Ride from the parking lot at 8:00pm.

At the 14-mile bicycle ride's halfway point, we'll provide slumber party snacks. After the ride, bicyclists are welcome to gather at the Winking Lizard Tavern next door to trade bicycling (and ghost) stories.

For more information, including directions, parking information, preparation and safety tips, and photos from past rides, go to:

Join Bike Cleveland at public meetings for The Midway

Cleveland Midway Cycle Track Network Public Meetings
The Midway concept continues to develop, and we're at a point where we need public input! If you don't already know, The Midway is designed to reclaim some of the excess capacity of Cleveland's road network, and create a network of fully protected bike lanes that would connect the city. A formal planning process is underway and now is the time to solicit public input and comment.

To that end, there are three important public meetings coming up we encourage you to attend and to share with your friends. East, west, and downtown. We hope to see you at one!

Thule car racks and cargo boxes

Carry your bicycles and gear safely with Thule car racks and cargo boxes - IN STOCK in our stores!

The summer vacation season is upon us. Whether you're just heading to your local park, or a day-long drive to your getaway destination, you want to arrive safely with your bicycles intact. For families, space inside the vehicle can be precious, so you want to look for ways to carry more gear.

Thule (pronounce it "TOO-lee") is a company based in Sweden, but all of their bike racks sold in the USA are also made right here in the USA, in one of their factories located in Connecticut or Colorado.

You can purchase your bicycle rack worry-free from Century Cycles, because we'll do the research to make sure we pick the right rack the fits your vehicle, we'll assemble it free of charge, and also install it free of charge--all while showing you how to properly install and use it so you can be sure it's safe every time.
