University of Cincinnati graduate student Nate Wessel spent six months painstakingly mapping out bike paths in Greater Cincinnati and everything in between including bike shops, public transportation hubs, water fountains and grocery stores. He also has illustrated the changes in elevation.
The glossy new map is being distributed free at local coffee shops and bike stores around the city. It is also viewable online.
