    Critical Mass

     

    On the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities around the world, cyclists congregate to ride in demonstration and in celebration. Critical Mass has no leaders and no agenda. Cleveland Critical Mass meets the last Friday of every month at Mall A downtown at 6:30pm and departs promptly at 7pm. We typically plan to meet at a local establishment following the ride. People come together to ride for many different reasons: to assert cyclists right to the road; to promote bikes as a fun, healthy and viable alternative to cars; to build a greater sense of community;to get more folks on bikes; or simply to celebrate bike love and ride in solidarity with other like-minded individuals and have some fun!

     

    See where Critical Mass is headed this month on Facebook.

    Building Education Series: Innovations in Cleveland

    This session will look at innovative projects in Cleveland like the Lake Erie wind turbine project, the first offshore wind facility in the Great Lakes and the first freshwater wind farm in North America.  The lakefront land bridge project proposes to build a bridge from the Mall to the North Coast Harbor connecting our city center with the waterfront. Microgrid technology is being discussed in Cleveland and Cleveland State University will review the feasibility study recently completed.  NOACA will give a high level overview of the potential Chicago hyperloop.  This would allow travel from Cleveland to Chicago in about 30 minutes! All fascinating projects and we'll get the latest information on each.  Cleveland Foundation is funding three of these projects.  We're fortunate to have a foundation in Cleveland with the vision to support these innovative projects.
