2021 Bike Cleveland Fundo Recap

On August 29th over 1,000 bicyclists participated in the 8th annual Bike Cleveland Fundo powered by Knabe Law Firm. The ride is Bike Cleveland’s biggest fundraising event of the year and donations from riders and event sponsors help Bike Cleveland continue to advocate for safe streets through advocacy and education.

This year’s event looked a little different than previous years as we took precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. But even with the changes riders had a great time exploring some of the new and old trails and bikeways. Here are few memorable quotes from our follow-up rider survey:

“I’ve been riding for years and hoping to get my son a bit more in to it over those years. He was interested in the ride this year and wanted to ride my Detroit Bikes 3 speed because of it’s more upright riding position. I thought he would be miserable climbing out of the valley several times on that 3 speed, but he ended up loving it. The Fundo might be -the- ride that inspires other rides and a love of cycling.” – Fundo Rider

The Fundo showcases Cleveland in so many great ways. I get to appreciate our city in new ways every time I ride! – Lisa J.

Great event for the entire of community of experienced riders, newbies, all the way to the young at heart. – Stacy L.

Thanks to all the riders who braved the heat and hills and joined us for our signature ride. Also huge thank you to our powered by sponsor Knabe Law Firm and to our rest stop sponsors the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District and Swagelok. Lastly, thank you to our wonderful volunteers! Without them serving snacks and cheering at the rest stops or getting you checked-in, or waking up at 5am to help set-up at Edgewater the Fundo wouldn’t happen.

If you enjoyed riding many of the new trails and bike lanes on the Fundo routes we encourage you to help us advocate for more by becoming a members of Bike Cleveland at BikeCleveland.org/member.

We look forward to seeing you all for the 2022 Fundo.

Thank you to our 2021 Bike Cleveland Fundo Sponsors
