Tuesday night is Group Ride Night in downtown Columbus hosted by the local bike shop Ride on Bikes. Check out their Facebook to guess how many people will show up. Winner gets a Fat Tire beer!
Every Tuesday at 6:30pm a group of up to about 150 people begin cruising the blocked off streets and historic River Walk for a scenic ride that extends almost all the way to Oxbow Meadows.
I’ve done this ride three times now and no matter how hot, buggy, or rainy it gets, it’s always enjoyable. Bikes are free to rent and usually fill up very quickly so I try to make my reservations at least four days in advance. Just show up in your gear, check in to receive your cycle, and start warming up with a couple of circles around the block before setting out. It can get very crowded so I like to wait a few moments longer before setting off.
It’s not easy taking pictures while on a bike!
The scenery along the Chattahoochee is gorgeous and it’s easy to get lost in thought while taking in the river view. Feel free to ride with the pack or take a more leisurely route.
Afterwards, head up the The Loft where you can enjoy 10% off your bill!
