Enjoy this 32 mile cycling adventure primarily on the magnificent Emerald Necklace bikeway set within the Rocky River Valley Metropark in Cleveland, Ohio. The green center-lined bikeway follows the lay of the land, winding alongside the Rocky River through woods and fields with just enough inclines to make good use of your bike's gearing.

The Emerald Necklace borders the greater Cleveland area, yet once one descends into the lavish wooded greenery of the valley the city noise racket is replaced with the sounds of rushing river rapids, the chatter of multiple sorts of wildlife inhabitants, and the everchanging joyful sounds and aromas of people playing ball, cooking out, and celebrating the great outdoors. And even, at times, as one travels along the Emerald Necklace bikeway, just the gentle symphony of nature.

At the trails end, climbing out of the valley the route takes a short winding course through a lakefront mansion neighborhood to the midway turnaround spot, right on the shore of majestic Lake Erie on a short picturesque stretch of beach.

This smart-guided route is 92% bikeway and comes with CycleNuts' 50% downhill guarantee. Sweating is optional. You set your own pace, starting time, guest list (maybe, just you) and touring agenda with CycleNuts' expert smart-guided cycle tour pattern.
