Bike Aboard

The 2019 Bike Aboard Season Has Ended

Please Note: The Bike Aboard program has ended for the 2019 season. The train will not pick up bikers for the remainder of the year. The 2020 season will begin in May.

Bring Your Bike Aboard the Train

Bike/hike the trails and ride the rails! Ride the train one direction and bike back to your starting point or vice versa.

Bike Aboard is $5 per person ONE WAY and is paid upon boarding (ages 3 and older). Cash is preferred; exact change is appreciated. The train can be flagged down at any of our boarding stations by waving both arms over your head. The train will always leave on time from the stations, so please arrive to the station 10 minutes prior to departure time.

Bike Aboard is proudly sponsored by Cleveland Clinic and Century Cycles.

Bike Aboard just got easier with the CVSR Train Tracker app! Download the app for free on Google Play or the Apple Store. This app allows you to follow the train, view the train’s current speed, heading and even listen to audio clips as you bike along.
