7/25: Cycle Canalway

Improving on something as basic as a bike ride may seem implausible, but Ohio Canal Corridor continues working on that very project. Over the years, they’ve tirelessly and tenaciously toiled to bring the Towpath Trail to downtown Cleveland. Today they host a 23-mile ride that starts at Morgan’s Hollow (Canalway Center’s picnic area) with a 7:30 a.m. check-in. After you ride five miles to Thornburg Station, you’ll board the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad for a trip through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to Peninsula. After that, you’re back on your bike where you started, where a barbecue lunch and bands will be waiting. There’s also a 10-mile, family-friendly version that starts at 10 a.m. There are also giveaways. Set your alarm clock to get to Canalway Center’s Morgan’s Hollow (4524 E. 49th St., 216.520.1825) on time. Fee: $12-$25. — Michael Gill
