It's time for the 2012 CEO Bike to Work Challenge!
The CEO Challenge isn't just fun, it's also important. It's important because bicycling is important to our community. Bicycling attracts young people to Columbus. Bicycling is good for everybody's health. Bicycling is a great family activity. Bicycling helps us rediscover our unique and wonderful neighborhoods and businesses. Quite simply, bicycling makes Columbus a better place to live and work! So show that you support bicycling by joining us at the 2012 CEO Bike to Work Challenge!
Date, Time and Location
- Monday, June 11
- Please arrive at the Grange Insurance Audubon Center by 7:30 a.m. and be ready to launch about 7:45 a.m.
Grange Insurance Audubon Center
505 W. Whittier Street
Columbus, OH 43215
There is ample parking at the Audubon Center and down the hill by the climbing wall. Thanks to the folks at the Audubon Center and Metroparks for hosting us!
We will ride over to Front Street and then north to City Hall. Mayor "Biking" Mike Coleman and other special guests will say a few words after we arrive at City Hall. Café Brioso will provide coffee, baked goods and fruit cups for us. Trek Bicycle Stores of Columbus will be at City Hall for us if your bike needs a quick post-ride once-over. We'll be done by 8:45 a.m. or so.
Biker Casual: some folks will be in spandex, but traditionally the majority of CEOs wear casual work clothes. You can always dress for your destination.
Need a Bike?
Contact Bryan Saums by Friday, June 8 at email@example.com if you need a bike for the ride. We'll have a bike and helmet ready for you at the Audubon Center the morning of the ride.
We will ride rain or shine. (We pushed this back to June for a better shot at "shine.")
If you need help getting from City Hall to your office, we will have experienced cyclists available to accompany you. Likewise, if you need an escort or a lift back to the Audubon Center to retrieve your car, let us know. Please contact Bryan Saums at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know what you need.
This event features our CEOs, but is for everyone! So please encourage your colleagues, family and friends to join us.
Please RSVP to me at email@example.com to let me know if you can join us.
If I've missed anything, please contact me with any other questions you may have.
