You Can, You Should, You Must Hop - May Green Drinks is Thursday, May 19th


May is Bike Month and as far as we're concerned, the more we know about bikes, the more we love them. A few fun facts about the most energy efficient vehicle ever created:
  • Anywhere from 6 to 20 bikes can park in a single car parking space
  • Bike trips replacing car trips displace over 238 million gallons of gasoline per year (nearly $1 billion worth at current prices)
  • Bicycles use 2% as much energy as cars per passenger-kilometer, and cost less than 3% as much to purchase.
  • Ohio Fun Fact: Unicycling is a mandatory subject at St. Helen's School in Newbury, Ohio.
Celebrate two-wheeled freedom in one of the flattest cities and join us for our annual Bike Hop on Thursday, May 19th. We will kick it off at 6pm at the Village Idiot (1439 N High St) with $3 Green Olive Vodka drink specials (Mountain Dew Flavor anyone?) For a little fuel for the ride, grab a sandwich next door at the newly opened Common Wealth Sandwich Bar, a local food treat. Around 7, we'll head to Wild Goose Creative (2491 Summit St) for a look into the Past & Future of Bicycle Propaganda . Note, Wild Goose is BYOB, but there are stores with beer close. We'll top off the evening, around 9, with a short ride to India Oak Grill (590 Oak Park Ave) for a cold drink and a late night nosh. [Green Columbus]
