Our Mission

Northeast Ohio is home to a vibrant motorcycling community. And Moto Cleveland provides stories and resources that help riders live the motorcycling lifestyle to the fullest.

Created by motojournalist Michael Marino in August 2022 — and originally branded “NEO Moto News” — Moto Cleveland is a motorcycle-oriented news service that covers what’s happening in motorcycling in northeast Ohio’s 21 counties, including the cities of Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown, Mansfield, New Philadelphia, Steubenville, Ashland, Sandusky, Alliance, Ashtabula and Norwalk, with occasional coverage of news and events in other parts of Ohio or western Pennsylvania.
