Riding a bicycle in Columbus has never been better. Whether you’re an experienced rider or new to city cycling, a few simple steps will make you feel more comfortable and confident riding in urban and suburban environments.
Plan a sensible route
Columbus streets and parks offer a wide variety of bicycle lanes and paths, from shared traffic lanes to car-free greenways. Choosing a route that suits your skill and comfort levels can improve your experience on two wheels.
Do a pre-ride check
Before you start a ride: adjust the seat to a comfortable height, squeeze the brakes to make sure there’s resistance, and check the tires to make sure they’re not flat. If there’s a problem with the bike, just dock it and hit the red “wrench” button, then choose a different bike.
