Bike to the Beach Party!!!

Ride your bicycle to the beach and enjoy a party under the stars! It’s June and Euclid welcomes Cleveland Critical Mass for a third year. Bike Euclid invites you to the Second Annual Bike to the Beach Party, June 26, 2015, at Kenneth J. Sims Park 23131 Lake Shore Blvd. Euclid, Ohio 44123. The ride will end in time to enjoy sunset. Beer and food will be available at the beach and you may also enjoy one of the local restaurants such as The Paragon and Beach Club Bistro. If you decide to pack a picnic, please no glass. There will be a fire to roast marshmallows. Bring a stick because they were in short supply last year. Thank you to Rebecca McFarland, of the Euclid Public Library, who will again be providing S’more fixings.

Camping

So now you’re thinking, sunset and an evening under the stars may not be enough. I want to sleep under the stars. Or perhaps you want to test out your new touring gear. Well, now is your chance. Overnight Primitive Tent Camping on the beach is available only for this special event, $5/camper. Simply bring your gear and register at the Bike Euclid table upon your arrival. Registration will be available before the ride from 4pm-5:30, as well as after the ride. Campers must break camp by noon. And yes, in the morning, the Mayor Bill Cervenik will again be flipping pancakes for breakfast!

Parking

Parking will be available at the park in the grass to the south of the Henn Mansion. We ask that you please do not park in the lot immediately adjacent to the building as this lot is used by those renting the facility. Overnight parking will be available for those registered to camp.

Mini-Mass

Collinwood and Euclid residents have been invited to join in the ride as it passes through their neighborhoods. A local ‘Mini-Mass’ will gather at Cebar’s Euclid Tavern (595 East 185th Street) at 8:00 PM to join the ride as we go by at approximately 8:15 PM. Cleveland Critical Mass will leave downtown Cleveland at 7pm, will be at the intersection of East 185th St & Lakeshore Blvd. no later than 8:30pm, and will arrive at Sims Park in time for sunset. All times are estimates.

She showed us how to bravely face our challenges with grace and grit. Tonight we will ride with her in our hart’s with thoughts of her family on our minds. We will greatly miss you Cara.

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.

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!!!
