On-street bike corrals coming to Cincinnati

In this week’s issue of Soapbox Cincinnati, I wrote about the first on-street bicycle parking in the region coming this April to Northside. The move is another important step by the City of Cincinnati towards becoming the bicycle friendly city this administration wants the city to become.

Bicyclists that are in the know are already clamoring about the new addition. But for those who have yet to experience on-street bike corrals, take a look at how they have positively impacted businesses, pedestrians, bicyclists and more in Portland.
