Want to make biking an everyday part of your life? Try getting started at 3rd Hand Bicycle, a local co-op that promotes cycling by providing the community with the facilities, tools, skills and knowledge to repair and maintain their own bicycles.

We’re launching a new sub-series within Broad & High called ARTifacts. This series of occasional shorts will feature hidden treasures from the archives of the Ohio History Center. They’ll be peppered into the show every couple of weeks.
