Bike Trails Around Airports

Mon Nov 05, 2001 12:03 am

Hi,

I was just reading a bike trail book for Ohio and there is a trail bordering Cincinnati's Lunken Field. There is also a proposed trail arond Columbus's Port Columbus International Airport. Anyone else know of one near them? I think it is a great way to excercise and be spotting at the same time.

I agree that it is a great combination I often drive with my bike around the perimter of ZAG (it is not exactly a bike trail, but a access road to fiels by the airport

GREAT IDEA! Safe, easy way to spot without being hassled by traffic or security, while also staying in shape!!! It's a superb idea!

I did not know they had one ALL THE WAY around DCA. I'll have to check that out, I have been on part of it. It IS nice.

Riding your bike is the best way to get to Gravelly point with all the traffic. I always ride my bike to DCA.

BWI has a bike trail that runs to the outside viewing gallery near 33L. I haven't gotte a chance to ride my bike there since it's a good 50+ miles from where I live.

Well it's not a true bike trail but the Loop road around DFW airport is where I have riden by bike for years. There are a couple of great spots to see aircraft.
