About The Bike Program
The mission of the City of Cincinnati Bicycle Transportation Program is to make bicycling an integral part of daily life in Cincinnati, so that persons of all ages and abilities utilize bicycles for all types of trips. We work toward this goal by planning, engineering, and implementing bicycle facilities, and by educating the community about bicycle transportation.
The Bicycle Program has successfully implemented many projects, including striping 10 miles of bicycle lanes, installing over 450 bike racks, creating 20 miles of shared-use paths/trails, posting 23 miles of bicycle routes, upgrading 231 miles of streets with bike friendly stormwater inlets, and installing 5 miles of shared lane markings, or "sharrows."
The Bicycle Transportation Plan
The Bicycle Transportation Plan was completed and approved in June of 2010. The plan lays out a comprehensive strategy for making bicycling an integral part of daily life in Cincinnati, so that persons of all ages and abilities utilize bicycles for all types of trips.
The plan recommends 445 miles of on-street and off-street facilities, to be implemented in three phases over 15 years. The on-street Bicycle Network is comprised of striped bicycle lanes, shared lane markings and other on-street facilities. The off-street Bicycle Network is comprised of shared use paths (multi-use trails), sidewalks designated for bicycle use, potential rail-with-trail corridors and connector paths. Read More
