Fun at the Open Streets Event in Akron

by Ruth Kaser for Cycling Articles

We had a great time at the event and appreciate the hard work by everyone involved to make the event a success. We accessed the TowPath Trail at the Robinson Avenue Connector with our first stop at the Wilbeth Rd Trailhead. From there it was Wilbeth Road and Firestone Blvd, along the way  we greeted the friendly people at  the Bridgestone table and saw the home of the Akron Racers-Firestone Stadium. We saw the sights on Aster Avenue and then it was back to the Towpath and on to Summit Lake -we enjoyed seeing the community area, and got our Summer Biking Spree form signed at the Summit Metro Parks table. Our last segment was Kenmore we rode down Kenmore Blvd and checked out the Rialto Theatre! and the Community Center.
