Bike Shaker 2022

Whether you’re a Shaker native or a tourist, spend this summer with the Shaker Historical Society to learn about Shaker Heights while enjoying everything the city has to offer!

In celebration of SHS's 75th anniversary and the North Union Shaker Village's 200th anniversary, Bike Shaker 2022 will feature guided tours during the summer focused on Shaker Heights and Shaker history.

**This ride was rescheduled from the original July date due to weather.

In 2022, we are honoring the 200th anniversary of the North Union Shaker Village! The North Union Shakers ride, our July tour, is a great introduction to the Shaker religious sect and North Union Community. This tour, led by experienced bicyclists, will take place September 11 and will visit significant sites around the city.

A helmet and waiver are required for each rider. Participants are welcome to tour the museum after the ride! Each tour is capped at 15 participants with a minimum of 5 participants.

About Bike Shaker

Founded by the Shaker Historical Society in 2011 under the direction of Ann Cicarella, Bike Shaker is a guided bike tour program (until this year!). Since its inception, Bike Shaker has been involved in advocacy with the City of Shaker Heights to encourage the painting of sharrows (shared lane markings) and the erection of signs to remind drivers that cyclists have the right to a full lane. Bike Shaker was also involved in a crowdfunded campaign to erect bicycle racks around the city and developed a public forum on Facebook to discuss all things bicycle. For several years, the Shaker Historical Society was the only nonprofit organization in Cleveland to ride in VeloSano beside the Cleveland Clinic.
