Cleveland's bike enthusiasts have spoken! Due to the sold out crowd for last year's inaugural safari on two wheels - Wild Ride at the Zoo - this year we're planning two!
Bikers of all ages will have two chances to cruise through Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on their bikes this year, Saturday, May 4 and Friday, August 16 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Wild Ride happens after the park closes to regular visitors so cyclists have the paths to themselves. Ride maps will point out bike routes around the Zoo for beginning, intermediate and experienced riders. Guests will see the Zoo on two wheels rather than two heels as they cruise by many of the outdoor animals on exhibit and have chances to meet the animal keepers.
Tickets for Wild Ride are $12 per person, with a $2 discount for Cleveland Zoological Society members. A signed release form will be required for each rider, and a helmet is strongly recommended. Advance sale tickets are available online at clemetzoo.com along with printable release forms. Riders under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign and deliver the waiver to be admitted.
Wild Ride at the Zoo is a rain or shine event.
Northeast Ohio's most-visited year-round attraction, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is $12.25 per person, $8.25 for kids ages 2 to 11 and free for children younger than 2 and Zoo members. Parking is free. Located at 3900 Wildlife Way, the Zoo is easily accessible from Interstates 71, 90 and 480.
