Congratulations to the Pelotonia Riders and Supporters!

On Saturday morning, as Pelotonia participants rode their bikes down Olentangy River Road, they were “serenaded” by members of the Capital City Pipes and Drums. The group was positioned on the bridge that crosses the road and the river at the Drake Union (just north of John Herrick Drive). Scott Caputo, John McCullough, and Mike Kelley played for the riders.  Other college supporters also cheered on the riders as they pedaled under the bridge.
