Bikers to deliver

teddy bears

Nearly 10,000 motorcyclists will ride the streets of Cleveland June 24 for the 21st Annual Teddy Bear Ride.

The riders will deliver thousands of teddy bears and children's books for distribution to the kids hospitalized at the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital throughout the year.

The motorcyclists will gather at Cleveland's I-X Center at 9 a.m. and depart for the Clinic at 11 a.m.

The riders are due to arrive at the Clinic at around 11:30 a.m. when the teddy bears will be delivered in front of the Crile Building, located on East 100th Street between Carnegie and Euclid avenues.

Once the bears are delivered, participants can enjoy entertainment and refreshments with patients at the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital.

Teddy Bear Ride Route: From the I-X Center, the caravan of motorcyclists will take I-71 North to 90 East and exit at Chester Avenue. The motorcyclists will travel east on Chester, turn right on East 101st Street, turn right on Euclid Avenue and left on East 100th Street. Volunteers are encouraged to line up along the route to cheer on the motorcyclists.
