A growing concern among Cleveland residents is people riding illegal dirt bikes on city streets, but a new series of summer events at the Cleveland Muni Lot hopes to change all that.
The events will hopefully give drivers their roads back and dirt bikers a space to ride.
The City of Cleveland and the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission are creating a family-friendly series for dirt bike riders, known as CLE Bike Life: A Rider Safe Zone.
Everything kicks off May 19 at 12 p.m. It will be free and open to the public, with events ranging from motorcycle vehicle inspections, lessons, off-road opportunities and youth mechanic sessions.
The City of Cleveland is working to build a dirt bike track within the city limits to get riders off the streets. A $1.3 million dirt bike track was approved last January. The track is expected to be built at Marion Motley Park near Carson Avenue and East 73rd Street.
