Pop Rock Act Wild Child to Headline This Year's NEOCycle


A bicycle and outdoor lifestyle festival held on September 10 and 11 at Edgewater Park, NEOCycle features six unique races and rides and celebrates cycling in Northeast Ohio.

The event will feature a build-out from Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park, BMX shows, stand-up paddleboard races and demos, a kid’s zone, a beer garden and Cleveland’s top food trucks.

NEOCycle also includes a music festival. This year, pop rockers Wild Child will headline the event. Local favorites Carlos Jones and the PLUS Band, the Floorwalkers, the Lighthouse and the Whaler, the Moxies MojoFlo, Mike Mains and the Branches, Thaddeus Anna Greene, Oldboy, Scarlet & the Harlots, Samfox, Lauren Lanzaretta, Jason Meyers Band, Nate Jones Band, and Squarebiz aka dj funk Shway will also perform. 

“NEOCycle is primed for huge growth in its third year and the Music Fest is an important part of the festival,” says David Gilbert, Greater Cleveland Sports Commission President and CEO, in a press release. “This year’s line-up will provide a musical backdrop to a weekend of cycling, food, drinks and fun at beautiful Edgewater Park. NEOCycle was created to highlight and promote Cleveland’s vibrant and growing bicycling culture and stimulate significant economic activity, and the Music Fest is just one feature that makes the event the country’s most unique cycling event.”

The full schedule will be released at a later date. Fans can check NEOCycle.org for the latest line-up and schedule info.
