Help Cleveland shoot for #38

Last spring Cleveland was named the #39 bicycling city in the United States. With all the local bicycling initiatives currently underway, with your help we just may climb to the #38 spot. Here's what you can do:

Attend a meeting: ODOT is trying to determine its transportation priorities and is holding public meetings around the state to get input -- with actual votes taking place at the meetings. Local bicycling advocates are asking cyclists to make their voice heard (and vote registered) by attending the Cleveland Project Priority Meeting on Wednesday, November 3, from 6 to 8pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at 777 St. Claire Avenue. To learn more and register (as well as see the list of other Ohio cities that will be hosting meetings), click here.

Take a 3-minute online survey: The city of Westlake wants to make the west side more bicycle-friendly and is seeking input from cyclists -- even those who don't live in Westlake. Click here to take their survey.
