Cleveland is so fortunate to benefit from the Cleveland Metroparks. Miles of trails to explore, picnic areas, soccer and baseball fields, nature centers, and so much more are available year round. If you live in Cleveland or you're just visiting, this a must do-see!

I do not know of anyplace nearby that rents motorcycles, or spider motorcycles. It would be fun though to travel throughout the Metroparks on one! Try a Google search for rentals in the area.
