Random Sports Ramblings

As if I didn't like the Phillies enough to start, my idiotic choice to dump one of their closers cost Hoagy Time a much-needed victory this week. Brad Lidge went on the DL, and I figured Ryan Madson would be an adequate stopgap solution. Minus-21 points later, I'm a loser again.

Harris to Propose Bike Route

Are you a Northside or Clifton resident who finished his or her last final of Winter Quarter yesterday? Then you have about two hours to hop on your bike and cruise down to City Hall at 1:30, when Councilman Greg Harris will unveil a proposal for a Spring Grove Avenue bike route. 

With major street improvement projects scheduled to begin this spring, Harris and his bike friends will try to get their tiny slice of the action in the form of a two-mile recreational lane connecting Clifton, West End, Northside, Camp Washington and Downtown.

The motion will be formally introduced after the press conference in the Vibrant Neighborhoods Committee meeting at 2 p.m., but you can ride your bike somewhere else if you want to.

Queen City Bike has much more on the proposal here.

Y'all Ride?

Just another reminder about tomorrow night's Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee public hearing regarding bike and pedestrian access across the soon-to-be-way-different I-75 corridor.

Cincinnati is generally regarded as a crappy place to ride bikes (see my recent CityBeat cover story "No One Rides for Free"), save for our lovely park trails and a couple of East Side commuter routes. An impressive downtown bike facility is planned for The Banks, but consideration for bike commuters along the I-75 corridor will be important for people to even get to it on two-wheelers.

Cyclists Unite!

In case you haven’t heard, big changes are coming to I-75 in the next decade. We need more room on the freeways for all of our cars, and with widening comes other infrastructure changes. One that will certainly affect bicycle commuters is the I-75/Hopple Street interchange, which needs to be updated so future generations of highway travelers can stop off at White Castle safely and effectiently. But local bike advocacy organization Queen City Bike (www.queencitybike.com) is hoping that city leaders will make sure that cyclists can cross the highway or use Central Parkway safely as well. A public hearing is scheduled for Oct. 22 at City Hall for the Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee to receive testimony regarding bike and pedestrian access. The peeps over at QCB are currently organizing cyclists to attend the meeting and speak on behalf of two-wheelers who don’t like the looks of the European-style round-about proposal that’s currently being considered. CityBeat will be at the meeting to see whether city leaders react to cyclists’ fears with genuine concern or fake charm. Roxanne Qualls is the subcommittee chairperson, and Chris Bortz, Laketa Cole and John Cranley are members. Go to queencitybike.com and RSVP if you know you want to attend the hearing and possibly testify. The bike people are looking to demonstrate a sizable bike crowd and welcome all support. Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee public hearing 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22 Cincinnati City Council Chambers, Room 300 City Hall, 801 Plum St.
