Bike to Work Week

Bike to Work Week is a national initiative sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and occurs  in mid-May. Cleveland Heights residents are encouraged to use their bike rather than their car during Bike to Work Week. Bike to Work Day is celebrated on the last day of Bike to Work Week with free coffee and pastries at the intersection of Edgehill and Overlook and other locations in the Cleveland area.

Community Bike Rides

Community bike rides are an excellent way to foster a strong cycling community, educate cyclists and motorists, and have a good time. HBC supports this through our bi-weekly (summers only) Free Wheelin’ Wednesdays.

Safe Routes to Schools
