Directions to the OCBC shop

By foot or by bike

By RTA (public transit)

By Car (from near by highways)

OCBC is at 1840 Columbus Road, about 1/2 mile south of Downtown Cleveland, in the Flats, right next to the Cleveland Metroparks Rivergate Reservation.

Columbus Road runs north from West 25th Street (the Y intersection between I-90 and the West Side Market), into the Flats, across the river, and ends where it intersects Carter Road/Canal Rd./R. Lockwood Jr. Drive, just below downtown. We're on the west side of Columbus Rd (on the left if facing downtown), between the Columbus Rd bridge and the railroad track.

Our entrance is from the parking lot in the rear of the building. Here is how to get there from the door on Columbus Rd. where GPS will lead you (which is the "back" of the shop, so we won't hear if you knock on it):

Go (south) toward the bridge. Turn right, just before the bridge, onto Merwin Ave. Turn right into the gate by our sign.  Look for the open dock door (door #2).  Park your car, or use the bike rack that you'll find on the left of Door #1 (and use your lock, or bring your bike inside!).
