Work in Downtown Columbus?

by Maureen McCabe on April 16, 2007

bike riderIf you work in downtown Columbus and live in the suburbs tomorrow is opening day of the season, according to Two Wheeling. I found the info on Tina’s Green Buckeye blog… about Douglas Morgan’s plan to get more people doing the 20 mile round trip via bike.

Free donuts and bagels at the coffee shop near Hills Market on 315 in the morning, tomorrow for those making the bike trek to downtown. The bike commuters will finish up the day at the Rusty Bucket… refreshements are compliments of the law firm Morgan works for.

Join Us for Opening Day 2007
Please join me and my biking buddies next Tuesday, April 17, for “Opening Day” of the 2007 biking season. We will meet at the coffee shop next to Hill’s Market (on Route 315 at the base of Worthington Hills) at 7am……….my law firm, Calfee, Halter & Griswold, has graciously offered to foot the bill for coffee and bagels for all intrepid riders who show up for our traditional Opening Day ride. We will begin our ride downtown via the Olentangy bike path at 7:30 sharp…..we will ride leisurely with due regard for our friends who are “shaking off the rust” from the winter

Morgan says there will be at least two more opportunities to do a communal ride to work this year, “National Ride Your Bike to Work Week” this summer and he is also sponsoring an event at the “”End” to the biking season… however it sounds like he bikes to work year round. Read the story on his blog’s left sidebar about how he stopped using a car and started using a bike for transportation. Or maybe he takes the bus when you really, really can’t ride a bike in Central Ohio?

I have two blogs. I think of this one as my red blog and the other as my blue blog… nothing political in either… it’s just kind of designer, color scheme thing… but I am going to try to make both just a bit green this week in honor of Earth Day.

Maureen, your blog is very impressive. I do wonder if that man actually really rides his bike everyday during the year to work…that is commendable. I hope they have good weather for the ride tomorrow.

Can’t wait to see the color turn green in honor of Earth Day…

Dayton is in the planning stages of re-directing some one-way streets. Included in the plans are bike lanes- a first for the downtown area. We already have some well used Rails-to-Trails, but nothing like that in the downtown. Nice to see.

The Hills Market started doing pancake breakfasts on Saturday mornings last season to welcome weekend bikers. The first official breakfast of this year will be on April 28th, featuring three pancakes, sausage links, Hills Own Honey Butter and free coffee for $5. It’s good for bikers coming and going on the Olentangy Bike Path.

Gena I don’t think he could when it snows…. I doubt the bike path is cleared (the streets aren’t….ouch) but what do I know?

Thanks for the compliment on my blog. I have been inert for months but I finally figured it out a couple of weeks ago. Then I upgraded, updated… whatever the WP lingo is for when there’s a new version and there’s a security issue with the old version… and I lost a bunch of stuff I had in the side bar and I had a back up but I did not know what to do with it.

Teri… sounds like a good move for Dayton.

Your comment has been here for hours, unmoderated, totally respectable, not a comment from a psycho because I have the anti-psycho force field up on this blog… between Askimet for spam and anti-psycho force field …who needs comment moderation?

Jill thanks for the info on the Hills Market’s pancake breakfasts, it sounds great for the bikers.

If you look around the room and can’t tell who the psycho is… ;)

It’s me. Thanks for the comment Teri.

Maureen,
Very nice blog. Spring is finally here, I think I’ll take out my bike now that you’ve inspired me.

Thanks for stopping by Monika. This spring weather feels good.
