Green Lawn Cemetery Historical Bike Tour (Fundraiser)

August 2 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Outdoor Pursuits has partnered with Green Lawn Cemetery Association (greenlawncemetery.org) to offer guided tours of the cemetery. This is a fundraiser with a portion of your registration fee going to support restoration projects in this iconic cemetery.

The Green Lawn Cemetery Historical Bike Tour is narrated by historian and naturalist Randy Rogers. It’s a great way to traverse this 360-acre cemetery and learn about the rich local history contained within. The cemetery is one of the oldest and largest in Ohio. It represents a vast treasure encompassing more than 200 years of history, and is the resting place of many prominent Columbus residents. The tour stops at several locations for informative talks about notable graves, monuments, mausoleums, and the Huntington Chapel. The cemetery is also home to state champion trees, as well as a recognized bird sanctuary.

BIKES: You may bring your own bike and helmet, or we can supply them. Indicate when you register. Our bikes are easy-to-ride, 7-speed cruiser-style models. We do require all riders to wear a helmet.

COVID-19 Safety: The tour is largely outside and can be conducted with adequate physical distancing throughout. Please bring a face mask. Our bikes and helmets are sanitized. Registration limited to 10 riders to ensure a quality experience and facilitate physical distancing.

WHERE: The tour begins and ends in front of Green Lawn Abbey (700 Greenlawn Ave, Columbus, OH 43223).

PARKING: Free at Green Lawn Abbey.

TOUR TIME: Allow about 2 hours. Please bring your own water or a cold beverage.

RESTROOMS: Available along the tour at Huntington Chapel.

CANCELLATION: If unsafe weather is occurring or imminent (thunderstorms, lightning, excessive heat) we will reschedule. Or we can provide you with a full refund.
