Bike to Work Week Update

Congratulations! We have just surpassed the total mileage for last year's Bike to Work Week. You have cycled over 11,000 miles in just 2 and a half days - a true accomplishment for Central Ohio cycling community.

We held two workshops this week: Vehicular Cycling with Tricia Kovacs and Bicycling and the Law with Tim Boone. Specials thanks to both of them for contributing their time and expertise.

News! Columbus has just been named a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. Tricia Kovacs has been coordinating this effort for over a year and worked with many, many volunteers. We are very lucky to have Tricia in our community and the Bike to Work Week committee would like to extend our thanks to her for her hard work in making Columbus a great place to cycle. Go Tricia! http://www.bikeleague.org/programs/bicyclefriendlyamerica/
