Cincinnati City Council celebrates Bike to Work Week

Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls, Laure Quinlivan, Laketa Cole and Jeff Berding celebrated Bike to Work Week by riding their bicycles from City Hall to festivities being held on Fountain Square last week. After arriving they addressed the crowd and took part in the bicycling festivities.

Last week several Cincinnati City Council members took to the streets, on their bicycles, for a ceremonial ride from City Hall to Fountain Square for National Bike to Work Week.  The Bike Month celebration encouraged individuals to commute to work by bike instead of by car.  In Cincinnati, Queen City Bike established bicycle commuter stations all over the city to help motivate even more to ditch their automobiles.

Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls, Laure Quinlivan, Laketa Cole and Jeff Berding were those participating last week from Cincinnati’s City Council.  After arriving at Fountain Square, the four council members addressed the crowd on-hand, and took part in the festivities taking place.
