Shaker Heights Bike Tours

Bicycles for rent and tours

Bicycles for the tours: Single speed, coaster brakes, chain guard, kickstand, bell and basket for spiriting you around town!

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!
