Hot, sticky weather got you bummed? What if you went outside and were greeted with a cool breeze and a pint or two (or ten) of something frozen and delicious. Well, Mother Nature might not always accommodate, but we can tell you how to make your own breeze and get some ice cream along the way. Freebies are in store for one lucky winner so keep on reading to find out how to enter.

CoGo Bikeshare makes breezy, easy. For just eight bucks, you get full-day access to the entire bikeshare system. Simple, step-by-step instructions on the CoGo kiosks walk you through process so even newbies will have a grand time. So, go ahead, hop on a bike and create your own summer breeze as you peddle and explore Downtown, which is where the ice cream comes in. Did you know Jeni’s Ice Creams stores are strategically located near several of the CoGo Bikeshare stations?

Start your refreshing journey with a scoop of watermelon buttermilk frozen yogurt at the Jeni’s in the North Market. Just outside, you’ll pick up your CoGo Bike. Head toward the Scioto Mile for a cool tour along the riverfront. Veer left toward Columbus Commons, check your bike in, and voila, another Jeni’s awaits. Lounge in the Adirondack chairs next to the Jeni’s kiosk as you linger over a waffle cone filled with a little Salty Caramel.

Stick around for a while, or hop on your CoGo again and head toward German Village for, yes, another CoGo station and another Jeni’s. Man, who knew keeping cool on hot summer days could be so fun (and tasty)? Tell us how you plan to stay cool downtown this summer on our Facebook page, and you’ll be entered to win a pair of CoGo Bikeshare day passes.

And just because we know how much fun you’re gonna have, here’s how you can also take advantages of the CoGo’s member appreciation week.
