Biking

Ride to and from CSCC

Bike to Work Day is May 16th. There will be a breakfast event at Columbus Commons at 8am with organized rides to the event from various locations. One of them is from the CoGo bike share headquarters near campus at Oak and Parsons. You can get a bike to ride from CoGo if you contact them ahead of time. See more details on the City of Columbus event page.

Ride CoGo! Don't have a bike at work? You can still ride to lunch or other downtown errands by using CoGo Bike Share. A CoGo station is located across from the book store on Mt Vernon Ave. See the CoGo page for more information. Want to give it a try for free? Contact Rich James for a day pass (supplies limited).
