Have you ever wished you could ride through Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on your bike? Well, Wild Ride at the Zoo is your chance!
You can roll past the rhinos and pedal right by the pachyderms from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Friday, August 16 - it's a safari on two wheels!
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, check out exhibitors on the Welcome Plaza and have chances to meet the animal keepers.
You can even rent a bike for the night from The Bike Rack. Your bike will be ready and waiting for you at the Zoo. Call (216) 771-7120 to snag your bike seat. The number of bikes available for rent is limited.
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.
