Bike the C-Bus is scheduled for August 23

Bike the C-Bus Bicycle Tour

The Long Street Tour's “Bike the C-Bus” is a fun way to get fit and check out a few of the neighborhoods in and around Columbus, while riding along side Mayor Michael B. Coleman. Experience segments of the King Lincoln District, Downtown, Short North Arts District, Italian Village, University District, Harrison West, Victorian Village, Arena District, Franklinton, Brewery District and German Village.

The entire ride will cover approximately 30 miles and will feature stops that highlight change that is occurring in our neighborhoods. Each stop will be sponsored by businesses and community groups and provide snacks, drinks and entertainment for the riders. The ride is configured to allow cyclists to complete segments if they do not feel comfortable riding the entire route.

The ($25) registration fee includes an official 2008 “Long Street Tour” jersey and wristband along with drinks and food at designated rest stops.

Our goal will be to make “Bike the C-Bus” into the region's premier cycling event celebrating design, health & fitness, and urban lifestyles. “Bike the C-Bus” is considered a ride and not a race and will offer a variety of course options to accommodate everyone from recreational riders to hard-core fitness enthusiasts.

Of course, I am involved in the planning of the ride as well as a few others. So we expect everyone to come out and support our ride and see Columbus and the different initiatives taking place in the city, plus pro cycling races in the King Lincoln District.
