Do you want to see some of the many interesting and historical locations that downtown Cleveland has to offer? Do you like bike rides? Do you want to meet fellow archives professionals in a fun and casual setting before you get too busy at SAA 2015? If you answered “yes” to these questions, why not join us at the Downtown Cleveland Bike Tour on Tuesday evening, August 18, at 6:00 PM? The ride will take about two hours (or a little more), and you will see and learn a little about Cleveland landmarks such as Playhouse Square, Public Square (during renovation), the historic Erie Street Cemetery, the FREE stamp, and many others.
The tour is operated by Cleveland Bike Tours. The cost for this tour is $40, payable directly to the tour operator via their secure payment site. (We suggest you use this link to ensure registration in the SAA group tour.) No need to bring your own bike; one will be provided. But you can bring your own if you wish and get a $10 discount. After you register, please be sure to complete the Cleveland Bike Tours online waiver form. We will meet outside FirstEnergy Stadium (the home of the Cleveland Browns) before the tour starts at 6:00. (You will receive detailed information about the meeting site after you register.)
So, join us on August 18th to get some exercise, meet colleagues, and see some of what Cleveland has to offer. For more information about the tour, contact Cleveland Bike Tours at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (330) 532-8687.
Let’s go for a ride!
