Old Brooklyn Pedal For Prizes

Submitted by Jeffrey Sugalski on Tue, 05/04/2010 - 18:54.

Join us for Old Brooklyn Pedal for Prizes on Saturday, May 22 during Cleveland Bicycle Week!

Participants will meet at Loew Park, 3121 Oak Park Avenue and receive a map of approximately twenty merchants and points of interest in Cleveland's Old Brooklyn neighborhood. You'll ride your bicycle with friends on your own or with a group guided by a ride leader to as many of those destinations as you wish, picking up a ticket at each to be entered into a raffle for one of many exciting prizes from neighborhood and local businesses. The more destinations you visit, the better your chances to win! 

Registration begins at 12 noon, with participants receiving maps of destinations and sent on their way at 12:30pm. Merchants and volunteers will distribute tickets until 3pm and you'll make your way back to Loew Park where the raffle of over $1,000 in prizes will occur at 3:30pm. 

In addition to Pedal for Prizes, the Old Brooklyn neighborhood will host a large showing of restored antique bicycles in front of Ameriflag, 3307 Broadview Road and Pedal Republik bicycle polo for you to watch or try at Loew Park at 3:00pm.

The event is free and open to all. Helmets are required, and everyone is strongly encouraged to bring a lock to secure bicycles when visiting merchants.

As an added perk, attendees who confirm their attendance via the Old Brooklyn Pedal for Prizes Facebook event page will receive special advance notice of the ride destinations so that they can plan their routes prior to the event. 

Old Brooklyn Pedal for Prizes is a grassroots volunteer endeavor organized by a small group of neighborhood residents and business owners.
