Shaker Historical Society

We inspire people to engage in and celebrate the Shaker Heights story and its impact on the region… past, present, and future.


Founded by the Shaker Historical Society in 2011 under the direction of Ann Cicarella, Bike Shaker is a guided bike tour program. Since its inception, Bike Shaker has been involved in advocacy with the City of Shaker Heights to encourage the painting of sharrows (shared lane markings) and the erection of signs to remind drivers that cyclists have the right to a full lane. Bike Shaker was also involved in a crowdfunded campaign to erect bicycle racks around the city and has developed a public forum on Facebook to discuss all things bicycle. For several years, the Shaker Historical Society was the only nonprofit organization in Cleveland to ride in VeloSano beside the Cleveland Clinic. Stop by the museum during the Bike Shaker summer program to rent a bicycle and take a historic bike tour!
