OCBC will be Valet Parking bicycles at this Saturday's Parade the Circle, hosted by the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Parking for cyclists is complimentary. The weather is expected to be perfect, so why not ride?

Sunday, April 13: Earthfest valet bike parking, bike refuse collection

We'll be providing Valet Bike Parking service again this year at this huge environmental education event on Sunday, April 13th, from 9am to 5pm.  For the second year this event will be held at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds in Berea -- not as easy to get to by bike as past years' events at the Zoo (though it's easy enough -- see below*), but much more eco-friendly, and a much better bike corral location, right by the entrance!

This year we'll also be helping to make Earthfest as close as possible to a "zero-waste" event, by using cargo bikes to transport recyclables, compostables, and (hopefully, very little) general waste from staffed collection points to special dumpsters behind the "Bee Barn". 

To ride to the event, you can follow these biking directions from Valley Parkway or take your bike on the RTA (Redline), to the Brook Park Rd. rapid station, and it is a 5 mile ride from there.

The 1st Bike Cleveland Social at OCBC!

If you missed our Winter Biking Expo in December, or the Marmots' Meander on Groundhog Day, here's one more chance to get current with winter cycling best-practices -- for yourself, your bike, or your city:

Saturday, March 15th, 7-9pm

Slideshow/panel presentation:

What We Learned at the Winter Cycling Congress in Winnipeg

  Last month five of us who are members of both OCBC and Bike Cleveland took a road trip to Winnipeg to attend the 2nd International Winter Cycling Congress, and check out some serious snow riding.  We had a blast, learned a lot, and took lots of pictures (see some of them on a Tumbler blog here).  But we figured we should do a bit more to share our experience with the folks back home, so we are inviting some local governmental decision makers and the public to join us for a slideshow and a brief recap of our conference presentations and what we learned there -- both in the formal sessions, and riding around in the snow with our Canadian hosts, visiting some of Winnipeg's many bike co-ops, cultural institutions, and swinging hot-spots.

As hosts for this Bike Cleveland Social event, OCBC will be serving tamales and beer -- so as usual the event is free, but donations are welcome, and pot-luck that goes with tamales will be appreciated! If the Ides of March brings snow, we'll also have studded tires and Bike-Skis to test ride -- and, in any case, some cool winter accessories at end-of-winter sale prices if you don't win any in the raffle! 

If you plan to attend, please join the event that Bike Cleveland created, so we know how many tamales to steam.

Think Snow, one last time!
