To Bike Or Not To Bike Around Cincinnati?

After seeing a decade of steady growth, the number of bike commuters in the U.S. has leveled off in recent years.

With more dedicated on-street bike lanes, an expanding system of riding trails, a bike-share system and several active cycling clubs, Greater Cincinnati is a far more bike-friendly city than it was just a decade ago.

Still, many believe Cincinnati is not doing nearly enough to promote biking and making cyclists safe on city streets.

May is National Bike Month, and joining "Cincinnati Edition" to discuss biking in our region are Social Organizer Jasmine Humphries, who started the Red Bike & Green cycling club in Cincinnati; Ohio’s Bike Lawyer Steve Magas; Red Bike Executive Director Jason Barron; and Wade Johnston, director of Tri-State Trails, a Green Umbrella initiative to expand access to walkable and bikeable communities.

Tune in to "Cincinnati Edition" May 8 starting at 1 p.m. to hear this segment.
