We’ve been a bit behind lately in keeping you current on where things stand with mountain bike access in Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Cleveland Metroparks. We had been planning to do a big article on it, but two recent radio stories tell the story better than we could.
The first story is from a few weeks ago on WCPN where Brian Zimmerman, Executive Director of Cleveland Metroparks and Stan Austin, Superintendent of Cuyahoga Valley National Park are interviewed about the future of the parks. What’s striking about this interview is that mountain biking was brought up as the first issue and both park leaders acknowledge it is at the top of their agenda. Click here for the interview.
And just yesterday, WKSU posted a story about mountain biking where Cuyahoga Valley National Park’s top official again acknowledges that a decision to allow mountain biking is a top priority.
CAMBA has been fighting the battle for access for 10 years now and these stories are probably the biggest signs of progress we’ve ever seen. We hope that our vision of world-class trails in Northeast Ohio is getting a lot closer.
