When you're off the road...be Uncommon

 
Spring has sprung...
  
FINALLY! Say good-bye to ear warmers, long sleeves, and shoe covers.  Hello short sleeves, shorts, and warm sunny rides!
 
We have an amazing resource at our finger tips, or should we say at our wheels.  Our Riverwalk is one of a kind and provides Columbus with a unique attraction for people of all ages.  With the warmer weather the traffic on Riverwalk will and has increased.  Keep these tips in mind when starting and finishing your rides:
 
Respect the Riverwalk 

 

1. Be courteous to other riders and pedestrians. Stay to the RIGHT and pass on the LEFT.  Let people know if you are passing by calling out a friendly "on your left".

 

2. Keep your speed reasonable.  We know you've been waiting a long time for Spring.  Use the first couple miles and your last couple miles as your warm up and your cool down.  This will help keep you and those around you safe.

 

3. Unplug. If you ride with headphones consider keeping them off until you are off the Riverwalk.  This will help keep you safe - aware of your surroundings and help others communicate their intentions. 

 

If we all work together we can make Columbus the best it can be!
