Wednesday was a big day for Cincinnati city
council approving various bike projects. Cycling enthusiasts say this is
great for the local economy.
"I would not be surprised if we start
making some national attention," said Nern Ostendorf, with Queen City
there's national studies showing that driving is declining, especially among
young people. As a city, Cincinnati has to adopt.
"We should be updating our
transportation infrastructure to go along with that trend so it'll be paying
off in the long run," said Ostendorf.
One of the bike friendly projects receiving a

says Cincinnati will have 35 stations in downtown, Over-the-Rhine and uptown.
A study by the city shows that it would cost between $70 and $100 for an annual Bike

"It's becoming something that people are
starting to expect from their city. It's kind of an amenity that people really
want to have. They want to make their city livable, easy to get around and
really convenient for them," said Barron.
The Bike Share program is expected to launch
Bike enthusiasts say Cincinnati is just on
the outside of the top 50 cities for being bike friendly.
