Dayton takes bold action! Columbus is sadly left further behind...



RiverScape MetroPark Bike Hub [Link]

Bike HubThe RiverScape MetroPark Bike Hub houses secure bike lockers, showers and restrooms and supports cycling as a form of commuter transportation. Membership has been designed for individuals whose primary bike hub use is to commute downtown by bike for work or school, but many amenities are available for recreational cyclists as well. The hub is situated at the center of a 70 mile regional bikeway system, offering opportunities to go south to Warren County, north to Miami County, and east to Xenia and Greene County.

Bike Hub membership is only available to cycling commuters. Recreational cyclists are invited to use the publically available amenities, such as bike parking, bike rentals, coin-op lockers and restrooms.
