Pedal Power: Bike to Work on May 17

Consider Biking invites Columbus CEOs, their friends, family and colleagues to get out of their cars and onto bikes as part of the first Cycling CEO Challenge on May 17. Join Columbus Mayor Mike Coleman, ODOT Director Jolene Molitoris, members of Columbus City Council, the Columbus Foundation, and Consider Biking for a Bike to Work Celebration and Cycling CEO Challenge.

Consider Biking is hosting this event with the support of corporate and civic leadership to demonstrate that there is a direct relationship between increased levels of active transportation and/or bicycling in any form and the economic competitiveness of our businesses and community.

The Cycling CEO Challenge Bike to Work participants will gather at the OSU Gateway Plaza at 1546 N. High Street for a brief ceremony with Mayor Coleman at 7:30 a.m. Bikers will ride together, under a police escort, the 2.5 miles south on High Street to the Statehouse, where the Consider Biking Celebration will take place at 8:30 a.m.

For more information, download the Consider Biking Bike to Work information sheet. Don't have a bike? Need a loaner bike for the event? Check out this list of shops that can help.
