Default Cincinnati has a new comprehensive bicycle plan

Cincinnati Council has approved a new bicycle transportation plan for
the city.

It sets out a 15-year program to add 329 miles of bike lanes and other
on-street improvements to make riding everywhere easier.

Gary Wright is the President of Queen City Bike and helped to develop
the plan.

He says one of the goals is to double the number of people who use
bicycles for everyday transportation during the next 5 years.

Wright says that number could double again in the next 15 years.

Council also approved an ordinance requiring drivers to maintain a
3-foot distance when passing bicyclists.

In addition, driving or parking in a bike lane will be prohibited and
drivers will need to exercise caution when opening their vehicle doors
to avoid hitting people on bicycles.
