Firestone Stadium, the home of the Akron Racers is off of Wilbeth Road, (a street with bicycle lanes) on Firestone Blvd..
What happens when you leave your car at home and ride to a July baseball or softball game? First you get to enjoy the longer day, second the money you save on parking and gas can be used for extra concession stand goodies. Since you rode you will really enjoy the ball games as you will burn calories going to and from the stadium!
