Heights Art Gallery, 2175 Lee Road  Cleveland Hts., 216.371.3457  When the Heights Bicycle Coalition contacted Heights Arts former executive director Peggy Spaeth about leading a summer bicycle ride—based on public art tours found in cities such as Chicago and San Francisco—her response was an enthusiastic “YES.” Instead of talking and riding at the same time, however, the initial idea has evolved into a dynamic duo of events: an illustrated public art talk at Heights Arts’ newly renovated gallery on Thursday, August 20 at 7 p.m. and a separate bicycle tour on Saturday, August 22 from 10 a.m. to noon. The hour-long illustrated talk on August 20 will also highlight the four temporary art projects that are no longer on view. Both events are free and open to the public. Because seating is limited in the gallery, please RSVP for the talk by calling 216-371-3457. The bike tour will meet at the mini-park adjacent to the Heights Arts gallery, 2175 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights. Helmets are mandatory. A rain date has been set for Sunday, August 23 at 1:30 p.m.
