In between stops we will ride by a community garden and find out about their garden compost drop off program.  Kyle O’Keefe from SWACO and other Central Ohio Food Waste Initiative  (COFWI) partners will be on the ride to share what’s happening with the COFWI Food Waste Action Plan.


Year of Yay! is a series of 12 monthly bicycle tours showcasing various businesses, organizations, sites and parts of town around a different theme each month. Kicking off at Lucky's Market at 10am every second Saturday, this casual no-drop ride is approximately 20 miles but rolls at a conversational pace and accommodates most riders. Rides are free for Yay Bikes! members and our first-time guests. Join today and check out some additional ride FAQs!

Earth Day Radler Ride

Earth Day Radler Ride

Join us for our Radler Ride Earth Day Edition!

Enjoy a casual guided bicycle tour around Columbus, beginning at The Crest Gastropub (Clintonville) for coffee and breakfast before heading off to some of the city’s best eateries.

Along the way enjoy four of Cavalier's best beer and Radler offerings. Did you know that the term Radler originates with a drink called Radlermass (literally “cyclist liter”) that was originally created by Innkeeper Franz Kugler? During the great cycling boom of the Roaring Twenties, Kugler created a bicycle trail from Munich, through the woods, which led directly to his drinking establishment. On a beautiful June day in 1922, a reported “13,000 cyclists” crashed Kugler’s party. Fast running out of beer, he blended it 50/50 with a lemon soda he could never seem to get rid of, and the rest is history.

The focus of our Radler Ride is to show the ease of cycling around our fare city with friends while having a fun and safe time. We will be meeting at 10:30 am at Crest Clintonville for a quick breakfast before launching off at 11:00 am to see the city. Arrive back by 1:30 pm to Crest Clintonville and partake in our annual Earth Day Celebration!

We should mention, there will be swag bags and one lucky rider will win a newly refurbished bicycle!

Along the way, each stop will feature a different beer or Radler. Stops include The Market Italian Village, The Crest (Clintonville), The Crest (Parsons), and Fourth Street Bar & Grill.

Beer and food are included in the ticket price!


Featuring:
• KRONENBOURG 1664 •
• KRONENBOURG BLANC •
