The Bike Route Guide was prepared by the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments with assistance from the Cincinnati Department of Transportation and Engineering, members of Queen City Bike, the Cincinnati Cycle Club and many area bicyclists.

The bike route guide indicates city streets actually used by area bicyclists and recommended to other adults for bicycle travel These streets, including the signed bike routes, are shared with motor vehicles and have no special provisions for bicycle travel unless classified as with bike lanes or as a separate shared used path. Cyclists should use appropriate safety precautions and obey the rules of the road.

The roadway classifications reflect general conditions –  not rush hour conditions.  Most routes will have more traffic during rush hours (7-9AM and 4-6PM weekdays).  Some routes are better in one direction than another.
