Switching-gears.org is funded by the Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (AMATS).
The purpose of Switching-gears.org is to educate people on ways to take advantage of the greater Akron area’s trails and inform them on ways to utilize cycling as a means of transportation.
Cycling is fun, great exercise, and a great way to enjoy our region. Plus, biking can help reduce pollution emissions if used for trips in place of a car. Obviously not everyone can bike everywhere all the time, but we hope you use this site to learn about how to “switch gears” and try something different.
