Give Your Old Bike New Life at the 2nd Annual Big Bike Drive

The Big Bike Drive is presented by CD92.9 FM and Johnny Velo Bikes with support from CAS, Franklinton Cycleworks, Yay Bikes! and CoGo Bike Share.

What: Donate your used bicycle and bike accessories to the 2nd Annual Big Bike Drive. The bikes will be refurbished and distributed to those in need throughout central Ohio.

When: Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22  from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. each day

Where: CAS, 2540 Olentangy River Road, Columbus, OH 43202. 

              (Enter CAS campus off Dodridge Street)

Why: With supply chain shortages and rising costs, finding bikes new or used is challenging and is especially so in underserved communities. With spring cleaning well underway, it’s a great time to dust off unused bikes and cycling equipment and give them new life and to someone in need. 

With help from Johnny Velo Bikes, Franklinton Cycleworks, Yay Bikes!, CoGo Bike Share, CD92.9 FM and CAS, donated bikes will be refurbished and redistributed to residents in need throughout central Ohio.

Last year over $25,000 worth of bicycles and equipment were donated and redistributed to residents throughout central Ohio in need of alternative transportation or just looking for some nice cycling fun.
