Welcome to the Bike Columbus Festival. We launched this event in 2008 to raise awareness about the importance of active living to prevent chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes.
The Festival has grown by leaps and bounds, with hundreds of cyclists enjoying the Mayor’s Twilight Ride and an entire weekend of events. This year the Bike Columbus Festival transforms into one of the largest events in Columbus, a multi-week extravaganza that brings together the joy and benefits of cycling.
Consider Biking’s Women’s Bicycling Summit kicks off the season in May. The Twilight Ride, sponsored by the Institute for Active Living, is followed by Yay Bikes’ Bike the Cbus on Labor Day Weekend. Between these signature events, we will promote and highlight everything bicycling, from tours and races to the brand new Bike Share program.
I am proud to lead one of the fastest growing bicycling cities in America. Please join me and help champion the message that active living is fun and healthy. Bikes can get you there, are good for the Earth and good for your body.
