Cuyahoga Greenways is a blueprint for linking neighborhoods, parks, Lake Erie, the Cuyahoga River, and public transit through a comprehensive countywide network of trails that are safe and welcoming for people of all ages and abilities. Cuyahoga Greenways expands the mobility options available to residents and visitors throughout Cuyahoga County.

Bike-with-a-Mayor

The 2024 Bike-with-a-Mayor (BWAM) season is off and "riding!" We’re working to surpass 2023's participation—11 communities and over 500 people—and aiming for 20 communities and 1,000 people participating! Some mayors are leading a hiking option and some communities have expanded involvement as Bike-with-a-Leader.

Bike-with-a-Mayor is a way for residents and elected officials to engage in conversation, experience the safe and not-so-safe walking and biking corridors and together, imagine new solutions.

Get your walking and cycling friends and neighbors together, encourage your elected officials to host a BWAM event in your community and learn how you can advance the growing Cuyahoga Greenways network of trails and bikeways!

What is the Cuyahoga Greenways Network?

The Cuyahoga Greenways Network is a system of existing and future trails and bikeways that aims to expand opportunities for commuting, recreation and exercise. This system was envisioned through a countywide planning process and is presented in the Cuyahoga Greenways Plan.
