What better way to celebrate National Bike Month than to bike to breakfast during Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 15? Not only will bikers roll into great festivities at Columbus Commons, one group will ride alongside Mayor Michael B. Coleman, aka. Bikin’ Mike. Organizers make it easy, sneazy for even first-time cyclists to experience how bicycle commuting works.
Join hundreds of your closest friends as you ride downtown along one of eight pre-planned routes. All routes converge at Columbus Commons at 8 a.m. where participants will enjoy a free breakfast, awards, booths and networking. You might even win a folding bicycle from car2go.
But what if you don’t work downtown? We still want to know more about your bike route so please log your ride here.
Communities from coast to coast showcase the benefits of bicycling during May’s National Bike Month. For instance, did you know that more than half of the U.S. population lives within five miles of their workplace, which makes biking a fun and active way to get to work? But you don’t have to commit all at once, just give it a shot on Friday, May 15 when you bike to breakfast. Register online and check out routes listed as Park & Pedal. Mayor Michael B. Coleman will ride with the group that has the most registered riders, and he’ll present the team with a custom award designed by Columbus artist and firefighter Allison Meade.
