Combine your love of biking and camping at Cleveland Metroparks Pedal the Parkway Campout, September 6 - 7. Come out and enjoy a campout and weekend bike ride through western portions of the �Emerald Necklace� that begin and end each day at Bonnie Park in Cleveland Metroparks Mill Stream Run Reservation. This unique cycling adventure allows participants to tent camp overnight in the Park District.
Each day cyclists will choose where and how far they bike ride by selecting one of three different predetermined routes of varying mileage and skill level. Participants can select a different 15, 35 or 50 mile bike ride each day with all routes beginning and ending at Bonnie Park.
After completing Saturday's bike ride, participants can recharge and enjoy a delicious dinner upon returning to Bonnie Park Picnic Area. Unwind and socialize with other cyclists while trying disc golf and slacklining with Cleveland Metroparks Outdoor Recreation staff. In the evening, relax around a campfire before retiring for the night inside your tent. On Sunday morning, refuel with a hearty breakfast before heading out for a second day of cycling and ending where the adventure began.
Adults and teens ages 14 and older will be immersed in nature while pedaling through Cleveland Metroparks Mill Stream Run, Rocky River, Brecksville and Ohio and Erie Canal reservations. The preplanned routes take cyclists through some of the most scenic areas of the Park District featuring forests, wetlands, lakes, ponds, hills, valleys and a variety of wildlife.
