If you've been thinking about trying a ColumBike or going for another ride on our local bike share bicycles soon, we have exciting news for you. Thanks to a generous gift from SIHO Insurance Services, you can ride a ColumBike bicycle completely FREE through May, June and July 2019! Celebrate Bike Month (May) by taking advantage of this great opportunity!
Here's how it works:
Simply visit one of the 8 ColumBike stations.
Swipe your credit or debit card at a ColumBike kiosk.
Enter promo code 417.
This will allow you to ride for 2 hours, free of charge. Once your 2 hour limit is up, you can either pay $3 per hour for any additional hours OR you can check the bike back into a kiosk and start the checkout process over to ride for another free 2 hours. Go to the ColumBike website or download the BCycle App to find out more.
ColumBike bicycles are enjoyed not only by Columbus residents, but also by visitors or those who work in the area. Beth Morris, Director of Community Health Partnerships, shares that “Healthy Communities is so excited about free bike share rides! As an annual member of the ColumBike program since its inception, I have often checked out a bike from the hospital and ridden downtown for a meeting or for lunch. It’s so much easier to park a bike than a car, especially downtown over the lunch hour! Clearly SIHO cares about the health of our community and is supporting this program in a big way. We are so grateful!”.
ColumBike bicycles are easily adjustable for your specific body type and can hold your accessories in its basket while you ride. Thankfully ColumBike bicycles have fenders, skirt guards, and chain-guards that keep your clothing clean while you bike from work to meetings or lunch. ColumBike bicycles are the perfect way to get in some exercise, reduce your carbon footprint, and to get places faster without having to struggle to find parking.
Enjoy your free ColumBike rides this May, June and July thanks to our friends at SIHO!
