    The Loveland Bike Trail is one of those rail to trails things. Here's a link Loveland Bike Trail
    I've only ridden it a few times but I think it's nice.

    If you're downtown you can probably ride the Serpentine Wall although I'm not sure if I would recomend that.

    I second the bike trail. I was out there this past weekend with my little one and trailer and we had a great time. get to the trailer early if you can. It tends to get a little busy.

    I ride the trail all of the time. The stretch from Milford to Loveland can be very busy on weekends. The farther north you go, Morrow and beyond tends to be less crowded.
    The Loveland trail is an old railroad bed with about a 3% grade. It goes all the way to Yellow Springs, Ohio. There are small towns and restrooms along the way. There are also various places to enter the trail, some not very well known. Also, watch out for the wildlife, we saw a snake the other day and sometimes deer will jump in front of you. One day I followed a groundhog, he just wouldn't get off the trail!
    If you are on the west side of town there is a county park called Miami-Whitewater that has a loop trail. It is slightly hilly but a nice loop. It also gets crowded, especially the inner loop.

    Little Miami bike trail, Miami Whitewater forest, Sharon Woods, Winton Woods, Lunken airport bike path. All nice bike path areas.

    For the Little Miami I'd recommend you start in Loveland because there is a park, restroom facilities for the family, and places to eat before or afterward.

    Take the "Loveland-Indian Hill" exit off I-275. Head toward Loveland. Follow that road all the way to the end. Turn right. Go over the bridge. You will come to an area where you'll see a parking lot to the left and the right for the bike trail. Turn left and go down and you will see Nisbet Park on your left. Riding over the stream will get you headed to the town of Morrow (13 miles), but there is a stopping place and restrooms just 4 miles up the trail from Nisbet Park. If you head in the other direction from Loveland (toward Milford), it is 9 miles with no restroom facilities except for a port-o-let in Milford. It can be crowded in the afternoons around the Loveland area, but otherwise you will find it pretty easy to navigate. Good luck and enjoy your visit!
    The bike for you is the one you will ride!
