Tour de Crown

Red Bike participated in the first Tri-State Trails Tour de Crown, presented by Great Parks. Red Bike tabled at the event and hit the trails with enthusiasm, making it an enjoyable and successful experience. The Tour de Crown brought together riders of all levels to celebrate the joy of biking and promote community engagement as they pedaled three different routes highlighting the existing and proposed 34-mile Cincinnati Riding or Walking Network (CROWN). Red Bike was thrilled to be a part of this fantastic fundraiser for Tri-state Trails. We had a blast interacting with fellow community members and sharing our passion for biking and sustainable transportation. Click here to learn more or view photos.
