Ride Buddies

Our Ride Buddy rides provide individualized support, in the form of custom routes and a personal "buddy", to escort people on their first commute attempt. The Ride Buddy program was piloted with Downtown Columbus–area residents and employees in 2015, with funding from the Mid Ohio Regional Planning Commission. Outcomes from that program are detailed here.

Ride Buddies are not currently available, but will be offered periodically as funding allows. Sign up for our newsletter to stay abreast of opportunities to ride with a Yay Bikes! buddy!
