Bike Newport is the Northern Kentucky version of Cincinnati’s Queen City Bike, a local organization that promotes and encourages regional cycling and cycling awareness. The mission of Bike Newport is to advocate bicycling, improve bicycling conditions, educate residents about bicycling safety and promote a progressive image of a bike-friendly city. The organization would like to see Newport achieve national recognition for its efforts toward promoting cycling, and hopes to see the economic benefits that follow. For now, though, Bike Newport has announced the opening of the newest trail segments of the 14-mile Ohio River Trail, which connects Lunken Airport to New Richmond Ohio. This is a segment of the larger Ohio-to-Erie Trail, an off-road trail that spans the state of Ohio from Cincinnati to Cleveland, following lands formerly owned by railroads and canals. Be enriched by topics such as the OKI (Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana) Street Guide for Cyclists, Bike Month event listings, bicycle maintenance classes and a lot more.
