Bike Euclid is a local advocacy group , formed in spring of 2014, working to promote a comprehensive stress free bicycling network for transportation and pleasure, and to encourage and connect bicyclists to resources which support their safe and legal use of their bicycle. Bike Euclid, in the winter of 2017, became a chapter of Bike Cleveland.
Our goal is for the City of Euclid to be a Bicycle Friendly Community, and designated as such by the League of American Bicyclists.
A community recognized by the League as Bicycle Friendly℠ welcomes bicyclists by providing safe accommodation for cycling and encouraging people to bike for transportation and recreation. Encouraging bicycling is a simple way towards improving public health. With more people bicycling, communities experience reduced traffic demands, improved air quality and greater physical fitness.
Building such a community can translate into a more connected, physically active, and environmentally sustainable community that enjoys increased property values, business growth, increased tourism, and more transportation choices for citizens.
Bike Euclid, working with citizens, the City of Euclid, and Bike Cleveland, will work to make Euclid a great place for bicycling by focusing on the 5 E’s; Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, Evaluation and Planning. Many efforts are already under way so check back often for updates.
Engineering: Creating safe and convenient places to ride and park
Education: Giving people of all ages and abilities the skills and confidence to ride
Encouragement: Creating a strong bike culture that welcomes and celebrates bicycling
Enforcement: Ensuring safe roads for all users
Evaluation & Planning: Planning for bicycling as a safe and viable transportation option
