There are many ways for spectators to get views of the race and cheer for your favorite team. We encourage spectators traveling to and from the regatta to use public transportation.

Race Course Views

The Head of the Cuyahoga race course follows the twists and turns of the Cuyahoga River for 4.8 kilometers.

It is easily accessible for viewing via off-road bike/walking paths through the Flats and into Tremont.

There are paths over both Columbus and Carter Road bridges and a shortcut from Columbus Road to the I90 Bend/Tremont via the Centennial Link Trail.

There are several options for bike shares and scooters available throughout the city. Bicycles are available to rent for the day at the Ohio City Bike Co-op (entrance off the parking lot between Merwins Warf and the Crooked River Skate Park).
