May is National Bicycle Safety Month, the Cleveland Metroparks tells us, and it’s a good time to dust off that bike, do maintenance on it, and review some basic safety rules so you can get out and get sunshine and exercise on some of the Metroparks hundreds of miles of trails in its 18 reservations. It’s reconfigured some of its trails to make them friendlier to cyclists too.
They’ve shared a video from the Cleveland Metroparks Police bike patrol on the rules of the road and how bicyclists, runners, walkers and motorists can co-exist safety in the Metroparks.
Don’t forget the Cleveland Metroparks 2020 Trail Challenge; if you complete at least 10 of the 25 trails you’re eligible for a prize. The routes can be biked, hiked or run. Find more information here.
