Registration is now open
More than half of the U.S. population lives within five miles of their workplace, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get to work. With increased interest in healthy, sustainable and economic transportation options, it's not surprising that, from 2000 to 2011, the number of bicycle commuters in the U.S. grew by more than 47 percent.
Bike to Work Day is an international event. Commit to ride and celebrate in Columbus! You might even win a folding bicycle compliments of car2go or get to take a ride on the Cycle Tavern.
