Bike Month in Cincinnati 2009

It’s Bike Month again, so here’s an especially useful map for area cyclists.  Note that this map contains what’s known as topographical data, as indicated by the slight shadings.  Appropriately enough, the gray represent hills, which can be useful enough if you’re on the right end of one, but a bit of a hindrance otherwise.  Note that the Mill Creek Valley and the banks of the Ohio are blessedly devoid of Cincinnati’s geographical vice: inclined surfaces.  So here’s a proposition: to document a bike month’s worth of quality rides around the area, similar to last year’s Literary Circumnavigation by Velocipede, paying specially attention to the flattish areas on valley floors.  For the gentleman or gentlewoman cyclist, these make for pleasurable, low-stress rides.  As we do so, we will note such features, for good or ill, as bumps, dens of iniquity, ice-cream and coney stands, bike-friendly beer gardens, water fountains, dangerous dogs, friendly dogs, etc.  -ed scripsi
