This is a “rules of the road ride” and riders must obey all applicable laws while riding their bicycles on public roads.
The 10 mile route is perfect for those looking for a short, family friendly option! Roll out of Edgewater Park, ride the new Lakefront Bikeway, and then loop through historic Tremont and Ohio City on your way back to the hub. Fill your waterbottle and grab a snack at the Rest Stop on Abbey Road if you need to.
Choose this route if: You’d like to enjoy a nice relaxing ride that even kids can do. If riding with children unfamiliar with riding on the road, practice ahead of time in your neighborhood.
Our 30 Mile Route is sponsored by Cuyahoga Community College
The 30 miler is our most popular option! Head east from Edgewater Park along Lake Erie, down the winding MLK Jr. Drive through University Circle, and on to Tremont to your fully stocked rest station courtesy of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District. From there, enjoy a route around & past the Cleveland Zoo, and onto Ohio City on your way back to the hub!
Choose this route if: You’ve ridden on the road before and are relatively comfortable around cars. This ride will take between 2-4 hours and is rolling in terrain with a couple of hills being of the short and sharp variety, but more than manageable. You could do this ride on just about anything, but a bike with gears is recommended.
Looking for a bigger challenge? Then sign up for the full Fundo and get out there! This route begins by taking the best of the 30 mile route above, and then adding our area’s most beautiful and unique bicycle friendly parkways. This route features three full service rest stops courtesy of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District before you swing back through Lakewood to the finish.
Choose this route if: You’re an experienced rider or someone who rides regularly but are looking for a bigger challenge. Despite being the longest route, the elevation changes are minor with long stretches of good flat roads along the parkways. This ride will take you 3.5-6 hours depending on your pace, and how long you spend at each rest stop. We recommend a road bike, or something with gears and skinnier tires for a ride of this length.
The Bike Cleveland Fundo is a fully supported ride with official vehicles providing SAG support to riders with mechanical issues, and 3 strategically placed rest stops packed with food, water, and other good stuff! You have to stay on the course to stay in the game! So look for these signs to know where to go!
