Chessie Circle Trail - Toledo Ribbon Cutting

A Ribbon Cutting ceremony was held on July 2nd for the Chessie Circle Trail at Bowman Park. Chessie Circle Trail is apart of the 2015 City of Toledo Bike Path Plan and Phase 1 of the plan was officially opened.  The current path has crushed stone and is more suited for fat-tire or mountain bikes than road bikes.  When funding is available, the City plans to pave this section along with other improvements.
You can see maps of this section along with a full map of the Chessie Circle Trail.  More information can be found at http://tmacog.org/bike

Welcome Genoa Bank - Bicycle Friendly Business

Genoa Bank Sylvania, OHWelcome our latest bicycle friendly business, Genoa Bank, located at Monroe and Whiteford in Sylvania.  We Are Traffic contacted bank president Marty Sutter just after construction had started to ask if bike parking would be included.  "We valued your suggestion and after careful consideration decided to install parking for bikes at our new location", said Mr. Sutter.  Drop in and open an account today, and be sure to say thanks for providing bike parking!  You can also find Genoa Bank on our bike rack map.

Sometimes, you only need to ask!  Let us know if we can help you obtain bicycle parking at your destination!

First 2014 Bike Rack Installation

Organic BlissThanks to Nazih Yaghnam, owner of Organic Bliss on King Road, we installed our first bike rack of the 2014 season today.  Nazih, a bicycle commuter himself, recognized the need to provide parking for the many cyclists that visit his shoppe off the University Parks Trail.  We placed the rack to allow room for 1-2 more bike racks as needed.  Next time to ride to the end of the U/P, drop in for lunch or something sweet and be sure that say "Thank you"!  You can find Organic Bliss on our bike rack map.

What is a Bicycle Friendly Business?

Starbucks CoffeeCheck out the new Starbucks Coffee on Central Avenue!  As part of Starbuck's "Green Store" initiatives, they routinely provide bike parking as part of new store construction.  Based on the number of bike riders in the area, I think they will consider to install additional parking as warranted.  Be sure to drop in and thank them for providing bike parking and welcome them to the neighborhood. 

Their grand opening is February 6, 2014 [NOW OPEN]

We couldn't wait to add them to our Bike Rack Mapping Project, check it out here!
