The Athens Bicycle Co-operative

Athens, Ohio has a non-profit organization of volunteers that fix and play with bikes. The intent being to create a community of people who can enjoy bikes to their fullest. To do this we need a very active and savvy bike community. We further this goal by fixing bikes, teaching volunteers about bikes, creating an environment where volunteers can teach themselves about bikes, planning bike related events, and creating ways of getting more bikes to more people.

Market Ride

With the help of OU's Office of Sustainability, we have planned this bike ride starting from the Farmer's Market on April 10th. Rainy weather will postpone the ride to April 17th. Call me (Eric) @ 740 707 9719 to affirm which date if the weather is questionable. The idea is to bring your bike to Market, buy all the wonderful organic foods and plants you need, and then leave the market in a large group, carrying your goods home with you. We will simply head West on the bike path and let the group direct itself or slowly dissipate as riders go their separate ways. If we want we can set a destination and head to it for a picnic or something. This event is part of Earth Month 2010: Roots of Sustainability. See the full calendar at:
