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!Mall A, Cleveland

Trails & Greenways: A Priority for Greater Cleveland — Urban Focus, Urban Core
Recognizing the value of trails and greenways, decision makers, planners, practitioners, and trail advocates from around Greater Cleveland will be gathering on May 31st at Lago in the newly redeveloped East Bank of the Flats to share ideas, discover new tools, and set the stage to transform plans and concepts into successfully completed projects.
Building on feedback from the four previous Conferences, this day-long event will include expert speakers, mobile workshops, peer learning, open discussions, and networking opportunities geared toward creating vibrant neighborhoods through people-powered connections of a recreational transportation network in the Greater Cleveland area.
The Trails Projects and Programs Showcase, featuring spirits/hors d'oeuvres, is included in your day or is available as a separate registration if you wish to join us later. The Showcase is an opportunity for municipalities, non-profits, park systems and for-profit enterprises to highlight their accomplishments and share best practices. Included in the festivities will be a special tribute to Bobbi Reichtell as she retires from an exemplary career in community development.

Throughout history, streets have served as a point of connection. From people to horses, carriages to street cars, public transit to automobiles, streets provide the main medium for travel, connecting us to work, home, and the people and places we love. And yet, in modern society, streets do more to divide us than connect us. Public transit, bicycles, pedestrians, and cars – both driven by people or by computers – all vie for command of our streets. Cars are often prioritized even though ownership is down either by choice or by circumstance. It begs the question: who are streets and sidewalks for? And who, ultimately, should be responsible for making those decisions?
Nearly 50 years ago, plans were made to bisect Cleveland’s east side suburbs with the Clark, Lee, and Heights Freeways. Residents of those suburbs came together to fight city government and the proposal – and won. Today, similar resident-led efforts are underway, illustrating the importance of streets and sidewalks that are inclusive of people, not just cars.
Join us for the first forum in our For the Love of Cleveland: The Power of Place series, a free conversation in Public Square on how to ensure our urban streets and sidewalks are safe for all, regardless of age, ability, or mode of transportation.

Compost seminars are open to all county residents and registration is required. Register here for a seminar visit or call 216.443.3731.
What is compost? Compost consists of organic materials derived from plants and some animal material that has been decomposed largely through aerobic decomposition (with oxygen). The process of composting is simple and is practiced by individuals in their homes, farmers on their land and by industries and cities through contracts with composting businesses.
Compost is rich in nutrients. It is used in gardens, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture. The compost itself is beneficial for the land in many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer to add vital humus or humic acids, and as a natural pesticide for soil. In ecosystems, compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation and wetland construction.
The following items are available for purchase by cash or check only:
Wishing Well Composter - $50.00
Ultimate Dirt Machine Digester - $50.00
Yard Butler (aeration tool) - $20.00
Compost Thermometer - $10.00
Sure-Close Compost Pail - $5.00
