Biking In The Boro

For Fun. For Health. For Transportation.

City of Springboro Biking in the Boro
The City of Springboro is committed to providing its residents with a non-motorized transportation system that safely links the City’s neighborhoods, business districts, parks, schools and the surrounding region. In 2009 City Council adopted an action plan that outlined a strategy for Springboro to become more bike friendly; that was followed by the establishment of an ad-hoc Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) to advise City Council, other board and commissions and City staff on related policy issues. BPAC meets monthly and is supported by a staff liaison.

Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan

BPAC has been busy since that time and in 2013 its work led to the adoption of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan that included policy and infrastructure recommendations in support of the long-range development of a pedestrian and bicycle network. That work had led to the designation of North Main Street (SR 741) as the first bike lane in the community in 2011 and the completion of a bike hub called “SPARC and Go” (Springboro Area Recharging Center) in 2013 on South Main Street in the Historic District. A second bike hub is located at 510 North Main Street.

​Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan Update, Spring 2020

The plan was updated and adopted in 2020, identifying current community priorities and providing recommendations on what to focus on next. See the plan here:
