CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - On Monday, the League of American Bicyclist named Cincinnati a 2012 Bicycle Friendly Community.
This is the first time that the city has won this award. The Bronze-level award recognizes Cincinnati's commitment to bicycle advocacy.
The City of Cincinnati first implemented this bike plan in 2010, after hearing from the citizens of the city. Here are some of the changes that Cincinnati implemented for the bicyclists.
- 100 bicycle racks were installed in 2011
- Several on-street metered parking spaces were converted into bicycle-parking-only spaces by installing lockable bicycle corrals.
- Bicycle-specific pavement markings at priority intersections
