April Fool’s Birthday Ride and Bash 4/1/16

March 30, 2016

Join the Kent Cycle fools for a ride and birthday bash on April Fool’s Day.

Meet up at Kent Cycle at 7 pm to air up, fuel up and get ready to ride.
Enjoy some daylight as the ride will leave promptly at 7:30 but be prepared with front and rear lights as it is State law when riding after dusk.
The route is about 20 miles long and will take about an hour to an hour and a half.
Meander through Kent and Stow neighborhoods as well as parts of the Hike and bike trail system along the river.
As always check the weather and dress accordingly. If it rains we will stay in, snow we will go.
We also strongly suggest you wear your HELMET. Check with us before the ride if you are in need of a helmet.
Stick around afterwards for food, drinks, music, movies and a raffle.
The raffle will include an entry to our upcoming race. Winner’s choice for Half Marathon or Duathlon entry.

Bike to the Beach – June Critical Mass 6/26/15

June 24, 2015

Sims Beach
Bike to the Beach Party!!!

Ride your bicycle to the beach and enjoy a party under the stars! It’s June and Euclid welcomes Cleveland Critical Mass for a third year. Bike Euclid invites you to the Second Annual Bike to the Beach Party, June 26, 2015, at Kenneth J. Sims Park 23131 Lake Shore Blvd. Euclid, Ohio 44123. The ride will end in time to enjoy sunset.

Beer and KRAV Food Truck will be at the beach!

You may also pack a picnic or enjoy one of our local restaurants such as The Paragon and Beach Club Bistro. If you decide to pack a picnic, please no glass. There will be a fire to roast marshmallows. Bring a stick because they were in short supply last year. Thank you to Rebecca McFarland, of the Euclid Public Library, who will again be providing S’more fixings.

Camping

So now you’re thinking, sunset and an evening under the stars may not be enough. I want to sleep under the stars. Or perhaps you want to test out your new touring gear. Well, now is your chance. Overnight Primitive Tent Camping on the beach is available only for this special event, $5/camper. Simply bring your gear and register at the Bike Euclid table upon your arrival. Registration will be available before the ride from 4pm-5:30, as well as after the ride. Campers must break camp by noon. And yes, in the morning, the Mayor Bill Cervenik will again be flipping pancakes for breakfast!

Parking

Parking will be available at the park in the grass to the south of the Henn Mansion. We ask that you please do not park in the lot immediately adjacent to the building as this lot is used by those renting the facility. Overnight parking will be available for those registered to camp.

Mini-Mass

Collinwood and Euclid residents have been invited to join in the ride as it passes through their neighborhoods. A local ‘Mini-Mass’ will gather at Cebar’s Euclid Tavern (595 East 185th Street) at 8:00 PM to join the ride as we go by at approximately 8:15 PM. Cleveland Critical Mass will leave downtown Cleveland at 7pm, will be at the intersection of East 185th St & Lakeshore Blvd. no later than 8:30pm, and will arrive at Sims Park in time for sunset. All times are estimates.

Due to Public Square being closed, we will once again meet at Mall A (Veterans’ Memorial Plaza) by the Fountain of Eternal Life (just east of the Key Tower between Rockwell and St. Clair Avenues) at 6:30 PM and ride off at 7:00 PM.
