    All Cyclists,

    The Cleveland Metroparks is interested in developing a network of on and off-road bicycle, pedestrian, and equestrian facilities that connects communities to Cleveland Metroparks Reservations.

    The purpose of the survey is to find out who the user groups are in the area, what types of facilities users currently use and desire, and a very draft alignment study of on-road bicycle opportunities, off-road shared-use path options, and natural surface trails.

    You can go to their Facebook page to take the survey:

    Or, you can log on to the survey directly at:
