Bike Euclid, as the newest chapter of Bike Cleveland, had the honor of presenting what we’ve been up to, at the Bike Cleveland Annual Meeting and Social, January 21st. A simply outstanding evenine and what a terrific way to kick off the new year. We took the stage, presenting to an audience of hundreds from throughout the region, along with Executive Director of Bike Cleveland Jacob VanSickle, Director of Cleveland City Planning Commission Freddy Collier, Matt Gray the Manager of Sustainable Cleveland 2019, and our friends at Bike Brecksville and Bike Lakewood. Thank you everyone for your support! And a shout out to the intrepid Bike Euclid members who pedaled across town for the meeting, including Dennis Rymarczyk, Tom Cavan, James Sonnhalter, and David Rozell.
We can all feel very good about current and future planned improvements to bicycling and active transportation infrastructure, as well as the improved understanding of safe bicycling. This is a team effort. Bike Euclid, working together with the Euclid Police Department, Community Policing, Euclid City Hall, Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail and Administration, Council, and Department of Planning and Development (particularly you, Ali Lukacsy-Love), is looking forward to another great year of growth and collaboration.
