12-mile Fun Ride


12-mile Fun Ride

A flat, urban ride that’s perfect for everyone and every bike, including families who would like to tote their kids along! For added safety a designated lane will be closed off to traffic. Beginning at Mall B in downtown Cleveland, this ride heads east, circling around Cleveland Clinic, past Taussig Cancer Center and other research facilities where VeloSano dollars are at work. Looping back into the heart of downtown, this ride ends with a home run taking you through Progressive Field (home of your Cleveland Indians!). After a lap around the warning track we finish where we started, at Mall B with a Finish Line Celebration.
Bicycle trailers and child seats (attached to the rear of the bicycle) are permitted on the 12-mile Fun Ride only.  All passengers must wear a helmet and equipment must have appropriate safety markings.
All rides follow the Rules of the Road, meaning you will be riding with car traffic and must obey traffic laws.
