ColumBike offers free rides through end of October

If you’ve wanted to get out and enjoy Columbus, you now have an option to get around for free, for a limited time.

The ColumBike bikeshare program is free through the end of October. Organizers explain the idea is to get more people to enjoy the displays put up throughout the city as part of “Exhibit Columbus.” You are encouraged to visit any of the eight bicycle stations and ride free of charge. Simply visit a kiosk station, swipe your credit or debit card, enter the promo code “278.” This code will allow you to ride for two hours free of charge. After that, you’ll be charged $3 per hour. If you don’t want to pay, you can check your bike back into a kiosk and start the checkout process over again.
