New cycling map released for Northern Kentucky

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A new cycling map is now available for Northern Kentucky peddlers to help navigate the highways and byways of Boone, Kenton, and Campbell Counties.

Published by OKI - The Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments - the map highlights roads that have marked bike lanes, steep grades or heavy traffic.

"Bicycling is a healthy transportation alternative and this new bike map will help people navigate their environmentally-friendly journeys," said OKI Board President Steve Pendery. "This new map will make it easier to leave the four wheels parked and conduct daily activities through the power of the pedal."

This is the first update to the cycling map since 2002. OKI Senior Planner and Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinator Don Burrell and a volunteer group of area cyclists reviewed existing maps; researched newly constructed bicycle routes and lanes; and compiled the information contained in the new 2010 bike guide.

The map research group evaluated the suitability of roads for bicycling and identified additional roads that could serve as useful biking connectors. The guide also consolidates previous individual maps for Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties into one which eases that ability to follow routes that cross county boundaries.

The new bike guide contains useful information to assist with commuting and recreational trip planning and highlights where striped bike lanes, parks, schools, stores and ‘significant' hills are located.

It also includes information involving Kentucky laws, bike maintenance, riding tips and various resources for cyclists.

Copies of the Northern Kentucky Bike Route Guide are free of charge and can be obtained from northern Kentucky bike shops or the OKI office.
