BikeWalkBG Launches Bike Bowling Green Map
BikeWalkBG, the community’s bicycle and pedestrian program is working to advocate and educate the public on basic bicycle and pedestrian safety tips and recommended bike routes in Bowling Green. Earlier this summer, BikeWalkBG launched a new bike Bowling Green map, identifying streets for novice and intermediate riders of all ages to spin their wheels. The hope with this map is to equip interested riders with a resource to find places to ride in our community that are friendly and safer to ride. The map is designed by the identification of level of caution a rider should take when riding on particular streets – Not Recommended, Experienced Rider, and All Experience Levels. Additionally, the map displays all greenways, parks, and points of interest in Bowling Green. If you’re interested in a printed copy of this map, stop by our office (1141 State Street), City Hall, Spencer’s Coffee, Bike Rack Bistro, Howard’s Cycling, Nat’s Outdoor Sports, or Bowling Green Parks & Rec. While the map does not display the entirety of Warren County, the Warren County Parks & Recreation Department maintains walking trails at six county parks. A summary of the trails and mileage at County parks can also be found on our website.

Additionally, BikeWalkBG wants to remind motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists alike, that we all share the road – be respectful of other users and remember that user is a human too. You might think you know all the “right” rules of the road, but here’s a summary of tips for all users:
