Looking for good rides in the Columbus area

My friend and I will be visiting my brother in Columbus for several days at the end of July and we'll be bringing our bikes. I see that the city has several good bike paths which we will probably ride. But we also want to see the city or parts of it that are bike friendly. Any ideas of where we should go?

How was your visit to Columbus? Did you find many good routes to ride?

I lived near the Ohio State University campus from 1992-1998 and found it to be a very bicycle-friendly city. The main north-south thoroughfares to downtown (Neil Avenue, Summit Ave, 4th Street) all had bicycle lanes. Most buildings downtown have bicycle parking. I was an avid mountain biker at the time: my friends and I would hit the dirt trails off the Olentangy River at least twice a week. For more serious mountain bike trails, on weekends we would drive down to the Wayne National Forest & Hocking Hills areas of the state (SE of Columbus).

I'm not sure of the bicycle landscape of the city now, but considering the progressive mindset in Columbus I would imagine it is better than when I lived there. I hope you had a good visit.
