KEVIN CRONIN: The Bike Cleveland board member, who occasionally heads the free Saturday morning social rides that depart from the Ohio City Bike Co-Op, shares what he sees as some of the city's most commuter-friendly streets.
Marginal Road — Pitted but scenic, this lesser-used street runs east-west along the northern edge of downtown. Riders can focus on the lake views while morning drivers clog up the Shoreway.
Euclid Avenue — This main downtown thoroughfare has a dedicated bike lane from University Circle to Cleveland State University. "It's an easy, safe, convenient way downtown if you're on the East Side," Cronin says.
St. Clair Avenue/Superior Avenue — Most downtown drivers use Chester and Carnegie to travel east-west, so Cronin says cyclists tend to use these wider streets with less traffic.
