We’re celebrating OTR Night at the Symphony with a short, fun, and musical bicycle ride through Over-the-Rhine!
We’ll supply the musical instruments and you supply the bicycle ~~ we’ll create a fanfare for everyone in and around OTR to enjoy. Join us at 6 around the bandstand in Washington Park for the “Tune Up”. Our ride will be a leisurely roll through OTR: no hills and easy enough for kids to join too.
If you like, decorate your bike for the ride — we’ll be featuring yellow, blue, and orange in case you want to coordinate! “Loudest bikes” get a gift from Reser Bicycles in OTR.
After the ride, all cyclists are invited to the concert – a special one for the city’s 225th birthday! There will be a display of Cincinnati photos during the music and special ticket prices for riders!
