Consider Biking Hosts OSU Bike Commuter Pit Stop, Sept. 21.

My friends over at Consider Biking, along with the fledgling Ohio State University Commuter Cycling Club, are sponsoring a "Pit Stop" on September 21st at the main gateway to campus at 15th and High. Sadly, I won't be able to be there since my wife and I are going to be at another OSU location that morning (the maternity ward).

Here's the word from CB and the OSU Club:
Subject: OSU's Back-to-School Commuter Cyclists' Pit Stop

Hello!

You're invited to join OSU's **new Commuter Cycling Club** and Consider Biking on Sept 21, 10a-6p @ 15th & High for the campus's first-ever event celebrating commuter cyclists! The purpose of the event is to 1) advocate for and instruct students about safe cycling and 2) introduce students to the wider cycling community in Columbus.

The Pit Stop will feature free tune-ups, urban riding & maintenance lessons, legal advice, bike registration, info, music & art, sales, and fun!

Other local groups on hand for the Pit Stop include:

-OSU Cycling Club
-B1 Bicycles
-Third Hand Bicycle Co-op
-Restoration Bicycle
-City of Columbus
-MORPC
-COBAC / Pedal Instead
-Tim Boone, Bicycle Accident Attorney

Please contact Meredith Joy (meredith.a.joy@gmail.com) or Austin Kocher (ackocher@gmail.com) if you'd like to participate (we're especially on the lookout for bike-themed arts & crafts, exhibits, oddities, etc), or just come out for a good time. See you there!
People, not speed.

  2. Yes, the wife and I have scheduled a c-section for this coming Friday (9/21). We don't know the sex yet. She wanted to wait and find out at birth, so that's what we're doing.

    Thanks! We're excited (and stocking up on coffee).
