Cincinnati Named Bronze-Level Bicycle Friendly Community [queencitybike]

City Also Commissions Bike-Share Study For Uptown, Downtown & OTR
Today, Cincinnati was named a 2012 Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. This is the first year the city has won the designation. The Bronze-level award recognizes the City’s commitment to bicycle infrastructure and advocacy, which was outlined in the City’s comprehensive Bike Plan first implemented in 2010 after an extensive public outreach and engagement process.
“We’re honored to be included among America’s most bicycle-friendly communities. The award, as well as the bike share study, show the City’s continued commitment and investment to making bicycling a viable transportation option for our residents,” said Michael Moore, Director of the City’s Department of Transportation & Engineering (DOTE).
To continue progress on the Bike Plan, the City is working on a bike share feasibility study in Uptown, Downtown and Over-the-Rhine. In a bike share program, public bicycles are available to rent on-demand at fully automated kiosks located around the city — fast and convenient access for any trip that’s too long to be easily walkable but too short to require the use of a car or public transit.
