Head of the Cuyahoga Regatta Photographs (Cleveland Edition)

If you competed at Saturday's Head of the Cuyahoga Regatta, odds are we took a photograph or two of you! While row2k.com has two galleries of photographs we shot, we wanted to post a Cleveland edition focusing mostly on Cleveland teams. If you or a loved one/friend rows for Western Reserve Rowing Association, Saint Ignatius, St. Ed's, St. Joseph Academy, Shaker, CYRA,  Magnificat, Case, John Carroll or Cleveland State, check out our galleries! To make it easier for you to find yourself or your favorite rower, we've broken them up into four sections depending on time of day.

All photographs are available for sale on a variety of mediums so when you see images you like, send us an e-mail at sharetheriver3@gmail.com. Your financial support helps fund our pro-bono efforts to brand Cleveland as a vibrant waterfront city!

The Head of the Cuyahoga Regatta is Tomorrow!

Head of the Cuyahoga course (5K)

The one day a year when the Cuyahoga River is closed to maritime traffic has arrived as Cleveland Rowing Foundation's Head of the Cuyahoga Regatta comes to Cleveland's waterfront from 8 am to 3 pm, Saturday, September 16th. Over 1,500 rowers from 59 clubs in 13 states and one Canadian province will experience the unique aesthetics of Cleveland's industrial shoreline.

Our ride-along with Saint Ignatius High School Crew last week gave us a front row seat view of what the scholastic, collegiate, and adult rowers will experience during tomorrow's racing (click here for the race schedule/heat sheet). Come down to Cleveland Rowing Foundation or hang out at Merwin's Wharf for a view of the festivities. Better yet, find yourself a bridge to spectate on! Columbus Road Bridge is a particularly solid choice as: 1) it's located at the end of the race 2) the sweeping turn can produce some tight passes as crews race for the line and 3) it's a short walk to Brick & Barrel BrewingHoopples, or Sainato's/Rivergate Tavern! The weather is going to be great for the last big event on the river before fall arrives.

NEOCycle CycloCross on the edge of Lake Erie

Yesterday's NEOCycle featured a day of activities, music and fun at "The Hub" at Edgewater Park. The day also included the "Edge of the World Cyclocross Spectacular with a full slate of cyclocross races (think a cross between road and mountain bike) across the undulating terrain and surfaces of the park. If you raced in the day's last event, the men's 1/2/3 race, odds are we got a photograph of you!

That's Center Street Bridge 1, Drunken Steelers Fan 0

Given recent news reports about the Center Street Swing Bridge being closed indefinitely, we decided to check out the 116 year old bridge for ourselves. We had heard it was back in operation and the approach of the Dorothy Ann/Pathfinder after the Cleveland Browns home opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers seemed a perfect time to catch the bridge in action.

We got more than we bargained for when a drunken Steelers fan decided to take a closer look at the Pathfinder by jumping a chain link security fence and climbing on to the bridge. His climb back over the security fence included a predictable dismount. Folks, don't do this at home or you'll end up having a conversation with the Cleveland Police Department.

Critical YAK on the Cuyahoga River

Critical YAK on the Cuyahoga River

Last Friday we caught up with the inaugural Critical YAK, an informal aquatic gathering where kayakers put in at Cleveland Metroparks' Merwin's Wharf dock, paddled 1.7 miles down the Cuyahoga River out to Lake Erie, hung a left and beached at Wendy Park for some fun at Whiskey Island Still and Eatery before returning to Merwin's Wharf.
