Bike the Cbus

Our signature annual event—Columbus’ original city-wide ride since 2008—highlights our city’s unique and evolving center-ring neighborhoods. Bike the Cbus is a casual bicycle tour welcoming cyclists of all ages and abilities with 4 short routes totaling 25 miles and stops hosted by local organizations who provide snacks and entertainment. With a 3-fold increase in participation to approximately 600 riders in 2013 and 2014, plus a newly expanded finish line after party with free food for riders and a beer garden, Bike the Cbus is growing, growing, growing! Check out photos from previous years, stay tuned for even more exciting news about this year’s ride, and save the date to experience the 8th annual Bike the Cbus on September 5!

Homeport leaderhip says, “We love to support Yay Bikes! and Bike the Cbus. Encouraging people to experience Columbus neighborhoods at the speed of bike opens their eyes to all the different nooks and crannies of our great city. You can’t truly experience a city unless you have toured it on a bicycle.”
