When is this going to happen?

The City of Columbus currently is planning a critical link in the downtown bikeway network. This 1.4 mile, east-west link not only would accommodate bicyclists, joggers, walkers and other users through downtown but would also complete a link in the 473-mile Ohio to Erie Trail connecting Cincinnati with Cleveland. The proposed trail will provide an identifiable, attractive, safe and convenient trail that engages bicyclists and promotes bike and other non-motorized travel in Central Ohio, and across the state. This trail would extend from North Bank Park to the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Jack Gibbs Boulevard. The Downtown Bikeway Connector will provide an identifiable, safe, and convenient route that engages bicyclists within downtown Columbus and promotes and fosters bike use in the Central-Ohio region, and across Ohio. the city's website...

COLUMBUS TO CELEBRATE 2ND ANNUAL BIKE TO WORK WEEK IN MAY

Columbus, Ohio—April 20, 2009—Columbus’ second annual Bike to Work Week (B2WW) celebration has expanded to fill the month of May with a two-week Commuter Challenge, a long and growing list of events, and Bicycle Friendly Businesses offering discounts to cyclists all month. Bike to Work Week is a program of the League of American Bicyclists, the nation’s oldest bicycle advocacy organization, in which cities throughout the country plan a week of activities to encourage bicycle transportation. Austin Kocher, Columbus’ B2WW organizer for the past two years, says, "Bike to Work Week is a chance for people all over Central Ohio to get the bikes out of their garages and cycle into work, perhaps for the first time.

The cornerstone of B2WW is the Commuter Challenge, a friendly competition among local organizations to see whose employees
