Log Off… Shut Down… Get Outside!

National Bike Month 2021

May is National Bike Month! This month, new and experienced bike riders are encouraged to get outdoors and on a bike! The Great Miami River Trail is a great place to do just that, right here in Butler County.



Currently, MetroParks manages a nine-mile section of trail between the trail entrance at 50 Oxford State Road in Lemon Township to just beyond the parking lot located at 4401 N. Verity Parkway in Middletown. The south section of the Great Miami River Trail is accessible from Rentschler Forest MetroPark – Reigart Road Area. The trail entrance at Rentschler Forest will take users south past the City of Hamilton and into the City of Fairfield, where the trail ends.

While you’re out and about on your bike, remember these important bike safety tips!

• Wear a properly fitted helmet
• Ride a bike that fits you
• Be visible – wear bright clothing, reflective gear, and use lights and
reflectors on your bike
• Plan your route
• Know and obey traffic laws
• Ride defensively and stay alert
