The Columbus Bike Co-op is sad to announce that we can no longer provide bicycle parking at the Downtown Farmer’s Market due to an ongoing volunteer shortage. Our final market will be on Saturday July 3rd.
While we enjoy parking bikes at the market and feel that it's a valuable service, we have been relying on just a few individual staff members and volunteers to provide this service over the last few years and we're at risk of burnout. Our Board of Directors has decided that it's time to focus on our core mission of providing bicycles and bicycle maintenance help to our customers at our workshop. We hope that our market customers will continue to ride to the market even if the bicycle parking station is unavailable.
If another group or organization is interested in providing the free bicycle parking service, we would be happy to work with them however we can.
