Fri 9/9-Sun 9/11
It doesn’t matter what kind of bicyclist you are — NEOCycle, which bills itself as “the nation’s largest urban cycling festival,” has something for you. From the hyper-speed athletics of Cleveland Velodrome and competitive races to the relaxed pace of Slow Roll Cleveland and the atmospheric Night Ride, it’s three days devoted to all aspects of bicycling. Whether you ride for fun, sport or fitness, there’s a ride scheduled that’s suited to your level.
Even if you don’t ride at all, there are plenty of reasons to attend. NEOCycle also features the Hub at Edgewater Beach Park — an outdoor lifestyle festival with vendors, a bike shop, a beer garden with craft beer from local breweries, food trucks, a yoga class, pinball, paddleboard demonstrations, a rock-climbing wall, mini-golf, ice-carving demonstrations and a music festival with 15 local bands on Saturday and Sunday. Who needs bicycles? Oh — and it’s free too.
