Shaker Heights Bike Tours
In 2014, Bike Shaker led four tours led by a professional architect and the leader of Bike Shaker. We will resume giving bike tours during the Summer of 2015. Check back here to see the 2015 schedule and like us on Facebook to be one of the first ones to see the new schedule when announced!
Below are the tours that we had in 2014, some of which were so popular, we might do again!
