March 7, 2015 Social Ride: Irish heritage
The theme for the March Social ride will be Irish-American
Heritage, so we’ll visit three sites of note on the near west side: St. Malachi’s
Church; the new Johnny Kilbane Statue; and Irishtown Bend, and pass by or pause
at many others including St. Mary’s on the Flats, The Achill Twinning Rock and
Famine Memorial; old McCart Street, the Farnan House, and St. Coleman’s and St.
We are pleased to have guest experts Colleen Day and Margaret
Lynch of the Irish American Archives Society along to narrate our stops
and answer questions, and Jacob VanSicle of Bike Cleveland to provide updates
on new or proposed bike infrastructure projects we’ll encounter along the way, like
the W. 65th St. TLCI study, the Lakefront
Bikeway/West Shoreway Project, and the Lake Link trail.
The route mapÂ is here, with additional links.
OCBC's 2015 Social Ride program is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant fromÂ Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
