We’re going to Parma Heights!

Mayor Michael P. Byrne and The Home Family Club has cordially invited the mass to ride to his city. Mayor Byrne (also a cyclist) said he heard such great things about CCM from Mayor Cervenik of Euclid and knew that we had to visit! They are planning water stops, protected bike/car parking, and discounts to many Parma Heights establishments.
Meet at Public Square at 6:30 PM, depart at 7:00 PM.

For those of you wanting to drive to Parma Heights and mass in from there, our end point is St. John Bosco Church at 6480 Pearl Rd.

Happy Friday Indeed!

We would like to thank Mayor Bill Cervenik not only for the use of that beautiful beach and making us breakfast, but mostly for the embrace he has given to the cycling community.

Chief Thomas Brickman , the Euclid Police Department, and Euclid Auxiliary Police Officers not only have you set a great example by embracing our cycling community, you continue to raise the bar on great public safety and community outreach. And without all the red tape.

Bike Euclid, the City of Euclid and the Euclid Chamber of Commerce has worked their tail wind off not only to make sure this all happened but to make sure their city lead by example.


Bike Cleveland, Cleveland Chief of Operations Darnell Brown, Public Safety Director Michael McGrath, Chief of Sustainability Jenita McGowan, Councilman Joe Cimperman and his assistants Rachael and Linda, and many others at Cleveland City Hall helped Cleveland Critical Mass and Cleveland Police Department come to the compromise witnessed on this months ride.

Chief Calvin Williams, Commander Patrick Stephens, Deputy Chief Dornat Drummond, and Commissioner Muhic we rather enjoyed adding your men and women of the Cleveland Police to our community. We did happen to notice that the officers seem to also be enjoying themselves. Thank you for sending this great team out to escort us. Together we brought many smiles to the faces we rode past in Cleveland’s eastern neighborhoods. It was definitely a Happy Friday!


June Ride to Sims Park

June Ride to Sims Park

The City of Euclid has invited Cleveland Critical Mass back again! This year they have planed an overnight campout at Sims Park and Breakfast with Mayor Bill Cervenik. Although Sims Park in Euclid currently bans alcohol, food preparation (meaning grills & cooking fires), dogs, and swimming,exceptions have been made for this event only.
Bike Euclid, working with the City of Euclid and the Euclid Chamber of Commerce, has worked very hard to make this happen.

Councilman Joe Cimperman Of Ward 3 offered to sponsor this months permit.

Cleveland Chief of Sustainability Jenita McGowan offered to pay this months permit fee.
Commander, Patrick Stephens of Cleveland’s Third District Police Department has offered a bike police escort.
Please be respectful the land and each other etc. etc. and help us continue to foster CCM’s relationship with the City of Euclid and The City of Cleveland.

March 2014

March 2014

This month The Mass takes a departure from what has become the norm for our rides. We will meet as usual and ride together but… We have no predetermined end point! The front leads and decides where to go this month. One request is that if one decides to take a leadership role please be responsible and thoughtful of the others in the group…For premassing it is suggested that everyone meet up behind the West Side market as it is pretty close to downtown. Let’s saddle up and go somewhere fun and spontaneous!!! Meet at 6:30 on Public Square and leave at 7:00. Get on your bikes and ride…Happy Friday!!!
