Tour de Columbus: A Two-Wheeled Tour of Columbus Taco Trucks

July 11th, 2011

A group of bicyclists toured Columbus, Ohio in a unique way on Saturday riding their bikes to various taco trucks around the area to sample the trucks’ culinary offerings. The event (co-sponsored by Columbus Yelp, Columbus Food Adventures, Elevator Brewing, Hal & Al’s, Columbus Rides Bikes Blog, Franklinton Cycleworks and Yay Bikes!) was called “Yelp On Two Wheels: A Taco Truck Tour!” (5 photos)

    That sure looks like lots of fun. To bad that Columbus has always been “just” the half-way stop on our MO Ozarks to East Coast trips. We always tour German Village, and stay overnight at Red Roof on the east side of town. Lovely city, and nice folks.
