Cincinnati's bike share organization Red Bike is adding 100 electric assist bikes to its fleet in the spring. Red Bike is launching a months-long pilot Monday with 10 e-bikes to figure out things like what kind of maintenance is required and how much to charge.

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.

With the opening of six stations in Covington last Tuesday, Red Bike is now available on both sides of the Ohio River and now has 50 stations in Greater Cincinnati. Since its launch last September, more than 46,000 rides have been logged on Red Bike.
