Event description
JellyRoll to Comfest 2019 - 5 bikeway miles - Columbus, OH

About this Event

Bike to Comfest! Escape the hassle of the traffic and finding a place to park your car. Just a short 5 mile bikeway ride (hence the name, JellyRoll) where parking is ample and traffic is nil. Bike corral provided at Comfest.

The plan is to meet at a convenient trail-side location (RSVP for details), ride to Comfest together, have fun experiencing it collectively for some agreed upon time frame, and then depart together back to the starting spot.

This will be a very casual, fun-paced (slow - JellyRoll) 5 mile social tour to Goodale Park via the Lower Scioto and Olentangy Trails and a bit of neighborhood roading. Bring a bike lock and some spending funds for food, beverages, and fun festival stuff.

IMPORTANT! CycleNuts tours are limited to 50 attendees. Please RSVP at the provided Meetup link within 3 days to redeem your ticket and hold your spot on this tour. Free tickets are deleted after 3 days - used or unused. Secret starting location is revealed with your RSVP. https://www.meetup.com/CycleNuts/events/259461767

Said someone: You wear what you are!

CycleNuts is an alternative cycle touring experience where seeing and socializing take emphasis over speed and (ugh!) sweat. Join along on bike-way touring adventures to destinations near and far. We call what we do 'touring' - as in what it is that we do in addition to or while riding.

The goal of CycleNuts is to encourage casual cyclists and cyclists interested in casual social cycling to get together and ride. All that is required is a cycle of some sort - uni, bi, tri, or tandem - and the ability and desire to ride, no matter what it is.

The vision of CycleNuts is to create a society of cyclists who ride at casual social speeds for the cause of fun, exercise, cycling awareness in the community, cycle-touring, and producing lots of good memories and smiles.

CycleNuts Tours in a Nutshell: All skills levels are welcome. Helmets are not mandatory. CycleNuts tours give preference to bicycle trail routes. Tours may begin and end or drop in midway at a point of interest serving food and refreshment. The speed will be at a comfortable casual class E (for easy everybody) pace determined ‘comfortable’ to fit those attending. Nobody is dropped, abandoned, or left to fend for their self (unless they wish to be). A tour may split midway to accommodate riding speeds and schedules of attendees. CycleNuts tours are self-supported with only the slightest of guidance. Emergency road support – if necessary – may be a creative, collective group effort. Or, you may need to fend for yourself. Be prepared with options.

Goals: To explore and enjoy as a group the sites and flavors of neighborhoods, communities, and regions; increase cycling awareness and appreciation in society; interrupt the doldrums of the week with a pleasant cycling activity; develop a community of cycling friends interested in touring together; get a bit of exercise, have fun, socialize, and smile.

Recommended Gear: A cycle (uni, bi, tri, tandem, or cycle/trailer rig). Front and rear lighting. Communication device. Spare tube or patch kit. Water. Energy bar. Air pump and wrench kit. Cycle lock. Funds for refreshment breaks. Warm and weather protective clothing – including protection for feet, hands, head, and face for the colder seasons.

Recommended Preparation: Always check your brakes, tire pressure, and lights prior to any tour. Routes may include bicycle trails, dedicated bicycle lanes on streets, bicycle ‘friendly’ streets, and at times of necessity, regular streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and dirt paths. We may experience darkness on evening or early morning rides as the days grow shorter. As well, consider what you are wearing and what you may need for changing weather conditions such as heat, cold, rain, sleet, and/or snow during a riding event.

Yes – CycleNuts will offer cycling events in all four seasons – what else could be expected from CycleNuts?
