East End in Cincinnati – New (and Flat) Bicycle Lanes

BicycleWheelsOnRoad

The East End, located along the Ohio River in Cincinnati, has a new bicycle route that will be operational at the end of July 2013. This will be the flattest bicycle path in Cincinnati.

The route has been under construction for several years with the first portion between Congress Avenue and St. Andrews opening in 2012.

The East End bicycle route is along Riverside Drive and goes along Lunken Airport and then connects to the Ohio River Trail where the East End path stops.
