Meet the Candidates Ride. Do you want Cincinnati to be more bike-friendly? Join Tri-State Trails, Queen City Bike, and UC | Sustainability Sept. 17 for a ride with Cincinnati mayoral and council candidates to make your voice heard.

This nonpartisan, beginner-paced ride follows one of Cincinnati's most historic transportation corridors, the Miami and Erie Canal. While biking the Canal Bikeway, experience the full spectrum of infrastructure for bicycles that Cincinnati has to offer: multi-use trails, protected and standard bike lanes, and shared roads.

The route is mostly flat with slight grade changes and occasional stops along the way. Meet at Sawyer Point Red Bike station, 705 E. Pete Rose Way, at 12:30 p.m. for a quick air-brakes-chain check. Ride departs promptly at 1 p.m. and ends at Washington Park. Ride is free and takes place rain or shine. Helmets are required. Spoke cards will be provided to the first 50 participants.
