There Is Finally a Bike Rack at 78th Street Studios


  • Scene Archives Photo

That 78th Street Studios, located in one of the more bike-enthusiastic and bike-friendly neighborhoods in Cleveland, and which counts casual and avid bicyclists among its most fervent and frequent guests, went this long without a bike rack on its grounds is one of the more mystifying, albeit minor, things we've encountered.

Visitors arriving on two wheels have long shackled their rides to telephone poles and fences and street signs in the immediate surrounding area for lack of an actual dock. For the infrequent visitor, or one dropping by on a bike for the first time, the omission could summon a moment of actual and genuine confusion. No bike rack? Here? Of all places? No, really, where is it?

Be mystified no longer, Cleveland.

Thanks to some help from Bike Cleveland there's now a bike rack right outside the main entrance in the parking lot. The above photo is an old archive shot, but they're there now.
