Event Details

You MUST register online for this ride.

Tour some of Columbus' most exciting urban growing operations with YayBikes! Site visits will include a variety of growing operations in Columbus working to increase the availability of fresh, organic produce, including several Local Matters' Growing Matters gardens!

Snacks on the route will be provided by Whole Foods Market.

Tour starts at The Aetna Community Garden and will conclude at the Near East Side Cooperative Market’s production garden for a delicious vegan lunch from Willowbeez Soulveg.

Let's Ride!

The Eggplant – Easy, 7.5 Miles: The Eggplant won’t ask much from you to be able to combine your passion for local food with an urban bicycling adventure. If your bike tires have not touched the road for a long time and or you feel a bit intimidated by the Watermelon but still want to do a bicycle tour, then this leisurely and shorter eight mile ride is for you! The Eggplant will allow you to experience and enjoy some of Columbus' finest examples of urban food production from the beauty and freedom of a bicycle while staying closer to the central city core. The riding pace will be relaxed and include many stops. This route is 40 percent about the bicycle and 60 percent about local urban garden food production. Start time is 9:00 AM sharp. Let’s Ride! 

The Watermelon – Due to unforseen circumstances the ride has been shortened to 1 route. Thank you for understanding and it is still going to be an amazing ride! 

This event is a fundraiser for Local Matters and Yay Bikes! Proceeds from the event will be shared between both non-profit organizations.

{ { HELMETS are *strongly* encouraged on all YB! rides. LOCKS are also useful at our stops. } }
