Cleveland has long been a car town. Built for 1 million people, Cleveland now has a population closer to 400,000. City planners and bicycle advocates see opportunites to give cyclists a bigger piece of the overbuilt areas. After years of battling, some streets such as Detroit Superior and Lorain Carnegie now have dedicated bike paths. New trails are making progress into the industrial Flats alongside the Cuyahoga River close to the Lakefront.
