Street Art and Craft Beer Tour of Columbus, Sunday 10/27!

If you follow VeloScience on social media, you’ve probably wondered where in the heck we find so much good street art in front of which we can pose our bikes for photos. Please come join us for the first ever Street Art Tour of Columbus, with hydration stops at Lineage Brewing, Seventh Son, and Land Grant. This is a purely fun, no-drop SLOW ride that meanders through places you never thought to visit, but to which you’ll want to return! Columbus is full of hidden beauty, splashes of artistry in mysterious places. And also the artistry of amazing craft beers, as well!

When: Sunday October 27 at 2:00 pm

Where: Start at parking lot at corner of Grant St. and Oak St. downtown. Free street parking on Sundays

How long: even with a few detours, less than 20 miles. Course Map Plan for 3+ hours with lots of stops and photo ops! The route is appropriate for any type of bike, and we’ll keep everyone together at all times.

How much: free, but bring beer money! Food trucks will also be available.

Who: ride with be led by Geoff, and several artists will be in attendance too!


VeloScience is moving to a new location!

Don’t worry, we’re not going far! On Sunday June 9, we’ll be relocating to 29 S. High Street (the corner of 605 and Old 161….you’ve ridden your bike through this intersection hundreds of times!) Our new location will give us 2-1/2 times as much space, plus a great patio for outdoor hanging out before and after rides. While our spot on Market Square has been a fine place to start, we outgrew the space three years ago. The new shop will have three workbenches, a larger fit studio, ample storage, more than enough parking to host group rides, and easy and safe access to our favorite roadways out of town. We’ll be bringing back our indoor training studio under in our same location, and in the winter will offer bring-your-own-trainer spin classes. We’re excited to evolve VeloScience into a true hub for the entire cycling community.


Our new location will allow us to offer much more: a wider range of accessories, more gravel bikes, more triathlon-focused inventory, and a fine sampling of mountain bikes too! Also, the Linus brand of urban cruisers will return to our sales floor.

We’ll be making the move Sunday June 9, and re-opening for business at the new location on Tuesday June 11. While our interior space is being configured, we’ll still be open for business as usual!

Alpe d'Denison Hill Climb on Friday July 29!

Join us Friday July 29 for the inaugural Alpe d'Denison Hill Climb Time Trial!  No need to have a racing license, just some enthusiasm for going uphill!  Ebaugh Drive, on the north side of Denison University's campus, is a tough 1/3-mile ascent with a little bit of everything that would make a Schleck brother happy.  We'll have prizes for the overall and age-group winners, including one-of-a-kind custom tee shirts so you can wear your KOM or QOM proudly!

KARAOKE!  Need I say more?  Moe's Original Bar-b-que will be hosting a party afterward with their famous BBQ and beers from Homestead Brewing.  It's going to be a blast!

Summer Time Trail Series Returns!

Join us every Wednesday evening June-August for our weekly Wednesday Night Time Trial!  Our weekly speed test is a great way to gauge your fitness and get an intense threshold workout!  

Meet at the Park and Ride lot on Old Worthington Road (Old 161) just east of Beech Road. First rider goes off at 7:30 pm.  At 7:25 we'll assign a starting order based on your estimate of your average speed, and start riders at 1-minute intervals.  Total distance is 8.8 miles.  The course turnaround is just before Rt. 310.  At the turnaround, you will have 1 minute to safely make a u-turn and prepare for your second leg.  

Our TT series is an un-sanctioned practice race.  There is no entry fee and no prize money - just bragging rights and glory! All road bikes are welcome - not just TT bikes. Come out for the fun!  First TT of the season is Wednesday June 15!

VeloScience Time Trial Series!

Come out and test your fitness every Wednesday evening this summer!  VeloScience is hosting an informal time trial series to give you a chance to win bragging rights and a higher threshold!

Where:  Old State Route 161.  Start is at the Park-and-Ride located just east of Beech Road.  Course goes east 4.4 miles to the turnaround just before Rt.310.  8.8 miles total distance

When: Every Wednesday evening at 7:30 (June 24 through September 2).  First rider rolls at 7:30, so please be checked in by 7:15.

How:  Riders will be started at 30-second intervals.  When checking in, please give your estimated finish time so we can establish a start order.  A holder will assist you with a neutral standing start.  Because we cannot close the road at the turnaround, your time will be measured in two 4.4-mile segments, with a 1-minute delay between so you can safely make a U-turn to begin the second half.  

This is an informal event, and we will not be charging any entry fees.  The series is open to all participants (kids under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian).  All first-time participants must sign a waiver of liability to be allowed to participate.  The road will be open to traffic, so the guiding rule is safety.  DO NOT pass another rider if you cannot safely do so due to traffic on the roads.  There is no victory worth risking the lives of yourself and others.  Drafting is illegal, and good sportsmanship is mandatory!

This TT should be great preparation for triathletes and time-trial specialists alike, or for anyone hoping to satisfy their need for competition.  Come join us for the fun!
