UPDATE: Camp Chase Trail - Columbus' West Side Bike Trail

Below: Camp Chase Trail retaining wall and gravel base before paving. Here, you are looking west towards Alton Road. Alton is where the paved section of the trail ends and this gravel section begins. The bridge being constructed over Hellbranch Run is behind me in this photo. The bridge abutments are in place and the prefabricated bridge sections have been delivered and are on site ready to be installed. I predict this section should be open all the way to Galloway by the end of this year. ----- Below: Here is the trail at Alton Rd. facing East. The trail is all gravel from this point. ----- Below: Here is the trail at Alton Rd. facing West. The trail is paved in this direction all the way to Cincinnati. There is no parking available here, we recommend parking at the trail head at Big Darby Creek and the Little Darby Creek on Alkire Rd. You can request a permit for overnight parking from the Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park rangers, office or possibly the new natur

This Bright Orange Skyway Is Copenhagen's Newest Bike Lane | FastCompany

This elevated track is the city's latest attempt at creating a cyclist's heaven. When Copenhagen started building a new network of separated bike lanes in the early 1980s, it quickly became a model of how to take a city back from cars. Now, more people bike than drive in the city center, and in the city as a whole, more people commute to work by bike than in the entire U.S. combined. But the city is aiming for even more bike commuters, and keeps building new infrastructure to make cycling as easy as possible. The latest: An elevated roadway that speeds cyclists over an area that's usually crowded with pedestrians. The  Cykelslangen , or Cycle Snake, designed by architects at  Dissing and Weitling  and completed earlier this summer, winds through buildings a single story above a busy waterfront shopping area. "There was a missing link that forced bicycle users to use the stairs or make a huge detour around a shopping center," says  Mikael Colville-And

Well there IS an easier way. It took about 60 minutes of practice for me to get my son from training wheels to riding a bike on his own.

This Brilliant Cycling App Is Helping A City Plan New Bike Paths

By capturing and processing data from cyclists in the German city of Wiesbaden, the city is putting paths where they're actually needed. When the German city of Wiesbaden was voted the worst city for cycling in the country by a bike organization, a local creative agency decided to help change that with a new app called  Radwende : As cyclists ride down city streets, the app traces each route and adds it to a giant crowdsourced map of suggested bike paths in the city. Designers at  Scholz and Volkmer  saw it as a way to bring new digital approach to a problem that was a struggle for government and advocacy organizations. "We believe in change, because a lot of people in City Hall as well as citizens want it to happen," says agency founder  Michael Volkmer , who was the driving force behind the project. "But it's a chicken-and-egg problem: The city doesn't invest if people don't cycle. People do not cycle because it's not safe

How Brownsville, Texas, Is Using Bikes to Address Social Problems | usa.streetsblog

Brownsville’s open streets event, “CycloBia,” has been a huge success. Photo:  CycloBia Brownsville This post is  part of a series  featuring stories and research that will be presented at the  Pro-Walk/Pro-Bike/Pro-Place conference  September 8-11 in Pittsburgh. Brownsville, a Texas border town, is frequently cited as one of the poorest cities in the country. It also has one of the highest obesity rates. But local officials have taken on some of the city’s health problems. And one of the key tools they’re using is cycling. Planning Director Ramiro Gonzalez says it’s been about two years since the city of 180,000 people — 93 percent of them Latino — began its cycling push. City Commissioner Rose Gowen, a doctor, made health-based initiatives a key part of her agenda.

Mount Air neighbors don't want cyclists in their backyards | Dispatch

TOM DODGE | DISPATCH Barbara Bergmann and Gordon Grigsby object to a proposed bike path that would run between their house in Mount Air and the Olentangy River. Two other proposals would put the path on the other side of the river from their home. The Olentangy River drifts lazily past the picture window in Gordon Grigsby’s house in Mount Air, an unincorporated community in northern Franklin County. He doesn’t want that view sullied by hundreds of bicyclists who might pedal past some day. “It would be a disaster,” said Grigsby, a retired Ohio State University professor of modern literature and poetry. A neighbor, Benjamin Knepper, wants to maintain the security and the peace and quiet he has known since he moved to Mount Air 25 years ago. “It’s a unique place that’s kind of been forgotten for a long time,” he said. “Most of us kind of like it the way it is.” Metro Parks officials are considering three routes to extend the Olentangy Greenway Trail northward to Highbanks Metro
