Pull out your Schwinn! Cincinnati has been awarded a bronze-level award by the League of American Bicyclists as a “Bicycle-Friendly Community”. Cincinnati is the only city in Ohio to receive this recognition.
Why the recognition?
- Cincinnati’s ongoing efforts to add bike lanes and parking across the city
- Bicycle Safety Ordinance passed by city council requiring vehicles to maintain a three-foot passing distance when passing bicyclists and banning cars from driving/parking in bike lanes
- Department of Transportation and Engineering (DOTE) added bicycle parking at special events and inside parking garages
- Summer 2012 Bike Share Feasibility Study to be conducted (Bike share programs in other areas use rental kiosks with 10-12 bikes at each location.)
