I never really paid much attention years past because I was riding the bike everywhere anyhow. Yet somehow this year I realized there was a bike related event almost every day of May! Of course the weather did not cooperate so many of them were washed out. This year I did pay attention and it was so cool to see everyone working hard to raise bike awareness in Cincinnati that I joined in. I hadn't made it to Northside Yacht Club yet so what better excuse than an easy ride out? And why ride by ourselves so we invited the entire city out to ride with us. Now, 10am on a Sunday isn't the most popular time slot of the week and I figured we (ms 5chw4r7z) would be riding out ourselves. But you know what, four other riders appeared and off we went.
Now these days downtown to Northside is a breeze, Central Parkway bike lane to Marshall Ave., drop down to Spring Grove where there is a bike lane most the way and even where there isn't Spring Grove is wide open and on a Sunday the traffic is light.
And Northside Yacht Club!! Their food is legit! A veritable mouth soiree! I definitely want to start riding the bike out there at least once a month.
