May is National Bicycle Month – and two weeks still remain in this year’s celebration of all things bike – so to help shed some light on more exciting upcoming bike events, I met with Nern Ostendorf of Queen City Bike.

Many people ride bicycles for fun and exercise, but a growing number of Greater Cincinnatians are also choosing cycling as their main mode of transportation. One survey found commuting by bike has increased two-hundred percent here in the last decade.

The Cinci Holiday Bike Drive is a volunteer-run project that refurbishes donated children’s bicycles and provides them to low-income children in Cincinnati. The aim of the drive is to improve family and child health by promoting cycling in our community. With your help, they hope to bring the enjoyment of bicycling to everyone by providing children with their first bicycles and helmets.

May is National Bicycle Month, and to help celebrate, Local Exposure presents a series of stories about bikes and cycling in Greater Cincinnati.

The MoBo Bicycle Cooperative is a non-profit volunteer-run cooperative dedicated to making cycling accessible and practical to everyone in the greater Cincinnati area.
