This family bicycle ride honors the memory of Miles Coburn, who was a Cleveland Heights resident and biology professor at John Carroll University, specializing in fish. Miles was killed while riding his bicycle in Geauga County, and his brother, Chris Coburn, has been organizing this ride ever since, with lots of help from volunteers, musicians, restaurants and more.
