Friday CLE Critical Mass Ride


On the last Friday of each month a group of Cleveland cyclists meet and ride through the city to provide awareness about cycling. Each month the Cleveland group has been steadily growing (last month there were 50+ riders). It was great to see everything from fixie road bikes to 20″ BMX bikes to commuter bikes to mountain bikes traverse the downtown city streets.

The group meets at 6pm and leaves Public Square at 6:30pm this Friday night. Learn more about the event at Join in and try something new!

A Rockin’ Good Time


Bay Skate & Bike Park Foundation (BSBP) would like to thank everyone that sponsored, supported, and/or attended the first BSBP Rib Rockin’ Raffle on May 22nd.  The fundraiser was a HUGE success, not only monetarily, but also in bringing the community together.  Nine teams competed for the title of Rib Rockin’ Champ.  With full stomachs, attendees enjoyed the rockin music of Jim Brewer’s band, Hipnotic Dog.  Thanks to John Underation, Rhonda & Clete Schneider, Jacquline Stang, Diane Goldfarb, The Lufkin Family and other members of the planning committee BSBP raised $23,000 in one evening!  This event brings the foundation’s totals within striking distance of fulfilling its complete capital fundraising goals, with only a few city meetings remaining before final approval.

Meeting Update…


Please come show your support for the bike & skate park project at the next city council meeting.  The meeting is Monday, Feb. 22nd at 7:30pm at Bay Village City Hall. The mayor’s proposed location next to the Rose Hill sledding area is on the agenda. It’s time for action…join us in the arena.


Community Support!


Tonight’s Recreation and Parks Improvement Committee meeting was a lively gathering during which the park gained considerable support but not located within the proposed Bradley Park location. Mayor Sutherland attended the meeting and suggested that the location move back to the area near the sledding hill in Cahoon Park.  This will hopefully be a big development in getting the park project in motion. Stay tuned!



Thanks to everyone who showed up and rode/skated at the Bike-Scooter-&-Skate-a-thon. Results and pics will be posted soon!
