“I bike on Riverside Drive. I want to continue to bike on Riverside Drive. This road provides safe access to beautiful scenery, parks and businesses. The road itself is an historical trait of Cincinnati’s personality. A dedicated bike lane will actually give people another reason and ability to identify with and become a part of it. Just as important, the road is actually flat. It is very accessible to bicyclists of all levels, and that is a rare trait for a road this long in Cincinnati.
The number of cyclists, use of bicycles as transportation, and the city’s reputation as a city that bikes is growing very fast. Cincinnatians are choosing health and clean air over sitting in their cars and adding to our smog alerts. This behavior should be encouraged, not taken away. I understand that 471 will be undergoing construction. I know that the highway will not be shut down, only face reduced lanes. If this is too troublesome for motorists, Columbia parkway is already an option. If they still wish to use Riverside Drive, that is fine, at 35 MPH. Riverside Drive is a residential street and no place for a highway. The speed limit should be enforced, not erased.
I hope that you understand that this bike lane will protect the property values of the residents on Riverside Drive, allow children to play in their front yard, and add to the quality of life for the residents of Riverside drive and the rest of the city. This is a simple matter of livability and conscience. Please, please do not let this road be misused.”

We may lose the proposed Riverside Drive bike lanes. We need your help to keep this project a priority.
The City of Cincinnati has been preparing to make changes in the lane configuration on Riverside Drive between Bains and Congress to add new bike lanes. (See http://www.cincinnati-oh.gov/pages/-42817-/.) Queen City Bike has advocated for these changes, and worked with the East End community and the City of Cincinnati to create a plan that will benefit everyone. Read more →
Getting hurt sucks. Weather you did it on your bike, just walking down the steps or while canoeing it sucks. Best case scenario, you were having fun when it happened or you’ve got a good story to go along with it. For me it’s not the accident that was the bad part, it is the recovery: the days, weeks, or even months of ice, Ibuprofen and watchin everyone ride off without you because you are still takin it easy.

The Riverside Drive bike lanes that were supposed to be installed this summer are in danger of being “indefinitely postponed.”
So we’re going to do what we can do while we still can, and bike to Lunken Airport and have quick a picnic, because soon that might be taken away from us.
We meet at Fountain Square at 6; we leave at 6:15. We’ll stop half-way there at the intersection of Collins Ave and Riverside to take a picture with the East End welcome sign. Then we’ll continue on to Lunken Airport and eat picnic food. You should bring picnic food. Then we come back in time for a Saturday night downtown. Read more →

You can look this good too! We just received a limited run of BMC Belgian Champ jerseys, two of each size from Small to XXL and matching caps to go with the BMC bibshorts already in stock.
You should have already gotten her something fancy or fun for her bicycle. Mothers Day is during Bike Month for a reason.
An up close view of the TdF action this past week… As one of the top sellers of BMC bikes in the country, RBO owner, Jason Reser, was invited to join the folks at BMC during the Tour this past week. Last we heard, a very happy but very tired Jason is on a plane heading home this very moment!
Check out the RBO Facebook page, where Jason has been posting some fantastic pics of his TdF adventure.
