Earth Calendar for May 14th and 15th

May 14, 2012

When do two wheels become six? When you bike and ride on Metro. Every Cincinnati Metro bus is equipped with a front-mounted bike rack that's easy to use. Best of all, when you pay your fare your bike rides free! To celebrate Bike to Work Day, bicycle commuters can ride for free an Metro, Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky buses, and Clermont Transportation Connection buses on Thursday, May 17th, when they transport their bike on the bus bike rack. Bike racks are on the front of all Metro, TANK and CTC buses and can be used at any bus stop including Government Square. Metro and TANK will also be at the Bike to Work Day celebration on Fountain Square on May 17th, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, with a commuter station to demonstrate how easy it is to bike and ride the bus. For more information, visit Queen City Bike Month, Metro, TANK or CTC's websites.
