Columbus residents have plenty of reasons to get on a bike. The city has been promoting its Commit To Be Fit initiative for years. Environmental consciousness is on the rise. So are gas prices. In a car-dominated city, alternative modes of transportation are on the brain.
Last year the city decided to draft a plan to make biking safer and easier for novices and experienced riders alike. They hired Alta, a nationally known group on the cutting edge of bike-focused urban planning. The move caught the attention of Bicycling magazine, which recognized Columbus in the June issue’s “Best Cities for Cycling” feature as one of “Five for the Future.”
