With terrain ranging from flat and smooth to steep and windy, Cleveland’s cycling trails offer treks for cyclists of all ability and age levels. One of the area’s most popular cycling spots is the Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway, which features 17 miles of asphalt along the Lake Erie shoreline.
Spanning Cleveland’s city limits from east to west, the Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway covers the distance between the cities of Euclid and Lakewood. Along the way, the route carries cyclists through parks, neighborhoods, and urban areas featuring some of Cleveland’s best architecture. The bikeway also connects to medical hubs and passes by several local attractions, including the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and FirstEnergy Stadium, the Cleveland Browns’ home field.
In recent years, efforts have been launched to expand the Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway and other area trails through the Bikeway Implementation Plan. As part of the initiative, the City of Cleveland hopes to increase the number of bikeway miles by 250 percent by the end of 2017.
