Become a Volunteer!

We have a very small staff, so our power comes from members, volunteers, and cyclists just like you. Make a difference in your local community by giving us a bit of your time each year.



3 Foot Passing Law

“The operator of a vehicle overtaking another vehicle shall pass to the left at a safe distance and shall not again drive to the right until safely clear of the overtaken vehicle. When a motor vehicle overtakes and passes a bicycle, three feet or greater is considered a safe passing distance.”

Our youth education programs make a direct impact on the health and happiness of our youth that extends to our entire community. Kids become safer, healthier, more confident, and more engaged in the world around them. Partners may be asked to pay a fee for these programs and services. Priority is given to partners serving under-invested neighborhoods and underserved populations. To book a program with your school or in your community contact Diana Hildebrand at or at 216-273-6872.

We've also complied a host of resources including videos and activity sheets geared towards youth to help make sure they are ready to ride safely. You can view the resources here.
