  • Lakewood: Your Cycling Hot Spot in Cleveland

    Lakewood has won the top spot for cycling in Cleveland. Making biking more accessible in America has been set in motion for awhile, and it looks like Lakewood has earned that right, at least in Cleveland. Here is some more insight into this story:

    Outside of Lakewood's Root Cafe, an earthy coffee shop that attracts local cyclists, a messenger locks his black, single-speed bike to a tree as a bus blares its horn while passing a biker on Detroit Avenue. Within minutes, a group of five kids pass by on their BMX bikes.

    The densely populated inner-ring suburb, originally developed around streetcar lines, is a good place to get from here to there on two wheels. At just 5.6 square miles, Lakewood offers abundant sidewalks, wide boulevards near the lake and a compact layout that makes for an easy ride between residential areas, schools, parks and businesses such as Root Café.

    But the town of more than 52,000 residents isn't stopping there. Lakewood recently approved a master bike plan that it hopes will make it one of the most bike-friendly communities in America by 2015.

    Long-term plans include the placement of street markers on Detroit Avenue and a reconfiguration of Madison Avenue to safely accommodate bicycle traffic.
