RBO Tuesday Night Road Ride

Every Tuesday in May, 6pm

This ride is open to all road bikers including beginners, the only prerequisites being 1) you have a road bike 2) helmet and 3) lights.

The route differs every week. There are three ride groups for different skill/intensity levels: Medium-Slow: This group generally stays on flatter ground and rides about 15-28 miles. The pace is generally 14-16 mph on flat ground and slows up the hills. Medium-Fast: Faster and more hills. Average speed on flat ground 18-20 mph, 25-35 miles. Race-Pace: Extremely fast, averages 25-30 mph when on flat ground.

Bike handling skills a must, sometimes fun, but always a good workout.

Four preset routes as this group is a "drop-ride."

Meet at the shop around 6 and leave at 6:15pm sharp. Pumps, changing rooms and bathroom available. If it's raining, we will have a trainer session in the studio."

Bike Program

The mission of the City of Cincinnati Bicycle Transportation Program is to make bicycling an integral part of daily life in Cincinnati, so that persons of all ages and abilities utilize bicycles for all types of trips. We work toward this goal by planning, engineering, and implementing bicycle facilities, and by educating the community about bicycle transportation.

The Bicycle Program has successfully implemented many projects, including striping 23 miles of bicycle lanes, installing over 450 bike racks, creating 20 miles of shared-use paths/trails, upgrading 231 miles of streets with bike friendly stormwater inlets, and installing 5 miles of shared lane markings, or "sharrows."
