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.

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.
