Consider Biking promotes all forms of bicycling. We provide educational resources, and advocate to improve the safety and conditions for cyclists using our roadways.
Consider Biking (formerly known as the Central Ohio Bicycle Advocacy Coalition) has been in Columbus since 1991 and our work has brought the bike racks on COTA buses, the Columbus Bicentennial Bike Plan and recently our study led to the CoGo Bike Share. We also worked with Westerville, Columbus and Dublin to become an LAB designated Bicycle Community. We have provided Safe Routes to School programs in Grandview Heights, Gahanna and Columbus School Districts. We have board members who work as planners, transportation engineers, Bike Shop owners and Health Professionals.
Consider Biking is committed to making Central Ohio increasingly safe, accessible, and friendly to bicycle transportation. The work we do is at the heart of urban environmentalism – raising awareness about oil dependency, pollution, congestion, safe streets, good urban design, and public health. We are partnering with local stakeholders to improve our streets, bridges, and trails in order to make riding to work, shopping, and exercising by bicycle safe and fun for everyone in the Columbus metropolitan area.
Why Consider Biking Works: Consider Biking has been here helping, asking, training and working to make Columbus a better place to live, work, and ride. We bring cyclists in the region together with the know-how to make bicycling a safe, convenient and fun way to get around. Our achievements rely on three key elements:
A professional staff that meets regularly with government officials in the meetings that affect your cycling environment
Dedicated volunteer leaders and a board of directors who meet regularly to keep us on track
Active members who come from a multitude of backgrounds to combine the strengths of commuters, bike clubs, trail users, racers, and mt. bikers to create a potent constituency.
