June Ride, 6/24 – Reminder

This is a reminder to join the expected 350+ bikes for Cleveland Critical Mass this Friday, June 24th. This month’s ride is very special as two CCM enthusiasts, Bob Peck and Amy Dwyer Hawk will be getting married on their bikes at Public Square! Come join in the celebration and participate in Cleveland bike history!

The bike wedding will take place just before 6pm, so arrive a bit early if you want to watch the ceremony. The CCM group and wedding party will ride together, departing Public Square at 6:30pm. We will ride for 30 minutes before returning to Public Square at 7pm to join any late arrivals. From here, CCM will continue to this month’s end point, The Academy Tavern, located at 12800 Larchmere Boulevard, for food, drinks and socializing.

The Shaker Square RTA Rapid Station is less than a quarter mile away, so there’s an option of riding Green/Blue Line into Public Square for the start of the ride or at its conclusion.

Tomorrow is expected to be the largest Cleveland Critical Mass to date. We will ride rain or shine! Please continue to help the bike community grow by sharing your CCM stories and inviting your friends.

Lastly, as always, please familiarize yourself with the guiding principles on the About page of http://www.clevelandcriticalmass.com/.

See you tomorrow!


June Ride, 6/24

The first Cleveland Critical Mass ride of the summer takes place Friday, June 24. We begin meeting on Public Square at 6pm and depart promptly at 6:30pm for an hour or so bicycle ride.

This month’s ride will feature a bicycle wedding! Bob Peck and Amy Dwyer Hawk, two loyal CCM participants and boosters, will be getting married on their bikes on Public Square just before 6pm, so arrive early if you wish to watch the ceremony!When CCM departs, the wedding party and guests will ride with us. Come celebrate this momentous occasion that will surely be the talk of the town!

Beginning this month, CCM is making some slight changes to be more inclusive and accommodating of people’s schedules. For those of you who can’t make it to the square by 6:30, the tentative plan is for the group to do a second pass through Public Square at approximately 7pm, so you can join us then.

The June ride will conclude at the Academy Tavern, 12800 Larchmere Boulevard for food, drinks, and socializing. Shaker Square is only a few blocks away, so there’s an option to take the RTA Rapid Green/Blue Line into Public Square for the start of the ride or at its conclusion.

Lastly, as always, please familiarize yourself with the guiding principles on the About page.  Happy riding!
