We will then catch the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad back. Distance we travel depends on number of stops; maximum distance is 20 miles. Participants must have their own bikes and be able to ride 20 easy miles on crushed limestone paths. Bike helmets are required.

E14 Magical Mystery Tour (Reprise): An Afternoon at ComFest

Turn up and tune in with past Board Chairs David Easter and Steve Abbott for another afternoon at ComFest, the alternative political & cultural festival that annually creates Three Days of Peace and Music in Goodale Park on the last weekend in June. Last year's participants still testify to the consciousness-raising that took place.
Bring your brightest tie-dye and your love of music, art, counter-cultural alternative media, politics and fellowship. All ages welcome. You can wander the park's Street Fair, music stages and exhibits at your leisure, but we'll stake out your crash-pad on a blanket in the shade. We'll cover dinner and a beverage from any food stand in the Street Fair, offer inspired/insightful music commentary, spin tales as believable as visions produced by chemicals, and provide lots of insider ComFest lore going all the way back to its origins on 16th Avenue in 1972.
