There are currently several un-connected bike trails running through Cincinnati and Hamilton County. Cincinnati Connects wants to change that by tying four major trails together to create a 42-mile loop, which would run through 32 of Cincinnati’'s 52 neighborhoods.

That would allow riders to get from Hyde Park to downtown to Price Hill, all on one trail. The plan calls for linking the city’'s four major trails, Mill Creek Greenway Trail, Ohio River Trail West, Oasis and Wasson Way, with six connector trails. The Cincinnati Connects plan, which carries a projected $21 million price tag, was unveiled last December.

Here to talk about Cincinnati Connects are Executive Director of Groundwork Cincinnati/Mill Creek, Robin Corathers; owner of Reser Bicycle Outfitters, Jason Reser; and Regional Trails Coordinator for Tri-State Trails, Wade Johnston.
