Ride with us on September 5, 2015!

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 30 miles and stops hosted by local organizations who provide snacks and entertainment. Check out 7 years of cycling in these delightful photo albums!

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 has undergone as many changes as the neighborhoods we explore. This year, another exciting change comes in the form of a new metric century we’re calling “Bike the Cbus+”. Speedier distance riders will appreciate this unique urban route.
