May is National Bike Month. With expanding bike trails, bike sharing services, plenty of bike shops, a high rate of bike commuters and a strong cyclist community, bicycle culture is rapidly growing in Cincinnati.
Ride for Reading, happening this Friday, is a book delivery to a local school - Parker Woods Montessori - via bike parade. It's a national program designed to assist children in low-income areas in becoming both healthy and literate. Some other events coming up include a spooky Bike Prom on Friday the 13th, Bike to Work Week from May 16-20 and Bike to Work Day on May 20.
Joining us to talk about biking for recreation and commuting in Cincinnati are Co-Owner of Spun Bicycles, Judi LoPresti, who brought Ride for Reading to Cincinnati; Board President of Queen City Bikes, Red Bike Board Member and Chair of Tri-State Trails, Frank Henson; and Ohio's Bike Lawyer, Steve Magas.
