The City Club of Cleveland's Ride and Learn: The Future of Riverfront Development

Yesterday a large group of cyclists/urban explorers joined The City Club, Bike Cleveland, Ohio City Bicycle Co-op and Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative for a "Ride and Learn" that served as a prelude to a riverfront development forum at Merwin's Wharf later that evening. Ride and Learn cyclists were blessed with: 1) clear skies between two rain fronts and 2) the timely passing of the freighter Buffalo as it travelled down the Cuyahoga River out to Lake Erie. Participants in the first Burning River Ramble will be very familiar with parts of the route:

Forum attendees then enjoyed a feast at Merwin's Wharf (sausage, pierogi, GREEN salad, yum!) followed by a riverfront development conversation with the City Club's Dan Moulthrop, The Plain Dealer's architecture and urban landscape beat writer Steve Litt, Land Studio's Tiffany Graham and Cleveland Metroparks' Brian Zimmerman.
