Bike to One World Fest
Cleveland is truly an example of America as the great melting pot of cultures and nations. With over one hundred nationalities living in the greater Cleveland area it is only natural to celebrate this diversity with a free multicultural celebration of the music, arts and food at the center of ethnic diversity, the Cleveland Cultural Gardens of Rockefeller Park.
On Sunday, August 25, 2013, Clevelanders will descent on the cultural gardens beginning at the Irish Garden (and up above to the British Garden) all the way down to the African American Garden as ethnic food, beer, wine and specialty drinks will be available as well as food. There will be performances from all kinds of dance, music and theatrical groups including Shakespeare being performed in the before mentioned British Gardens on East Boulevard.
Along with the cultural displays, food, drink, music and performances in celebration of the 66th annual One World Day, there will be a naturalization ceremony honoring new immigrants to the United States.
Bike Cleveland is participating by inviting its members to cycle to the festival using one of the self guided routes from Public Square. The kind folks at Ohio City Bike Co-op (OCBC) will be providing free bike valet near the British Garden at 1131 East Blvd. As an extra incentive, cyclists will get their own hospitality tent and a *free liquid surprise*!
Don't have a bike? You can go green and explore all 275 acres of Rockefeller Park by renting a bike from OCBC for $7/hour after you arrive at the festival!

Eastside Walk and Ride
It’s not impossible to get from the near Eastside to the lake via bicycle but it is pretty difficult. Change is in the air since Bike Cleveland came to town and this is another project that they have taken under their wing.
On Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. you are invited to join The Campus District, Inc., Greater Cleveland YMCA, Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, and Bike Cleveland to the first Eastside Walk & Ride.
These fun guided tours are designed to bring awareness of the barriers to pedestrian and bike traffic in the Campus District. Walk along or ride on a guided tour.
Meet at the southwest corner of Euclid Ave. & E. 22nd Street, near Cleveland State University. RSVP on Facebook or by emailing email@example.com.
Even if you are unable to attend the Walk & Ride, your feedback is still important to Bike Cleveland. Here is what you can do on your own:
• Walk or bike one or both of the routes: North Route/South Route;
• Photograph and upload images to Facebook or Twitter with hashtags #EastsideAsset of locations that encourage walking/biking or #EastsideBarrier of problem spots
• After completing one or both routes, answer the questions in this online survey: http://bit.ly/155RTFh.
