Who are Preble Trails?

Preble Trails is a vision, a group, and the motivation behind creating a bike friendly culture and community in Preble County, Ohio.

We want to increase travel and tourism, and commerce to and through Preble County. We want to be host to bike friendly restaurants and shops. We want to connect our covered bridges with family friendly accessible bike routes. We want our students and children to be able to bike to school safely with designated bike lanes. We want to connect our parks, like Ft. St. Clair and Seven Mile. We want the residents of Preble County to feel comfortable biking to our downtown Farmer’s Market. We want cyclists to feel safe biking to work. 

Cycling shouldn’t be scary. Cycling is and should be FUN!

So, yeah, we want a lot. And we think Preble County citizens deserve it. Don’t you?
