American Electric Power

Welcome to the AEP Team RideNet site. The AEP Team includes all kinds of cyclists with a shared objective: Advancing bicycling as a way to enhance our lives and the overall community.

AEP continues to focus on encouraging employees and their familly members to bike to work, school or for errands in lieu of driving. It's all part of a community-wide effort to get everyone to replace two car trips a month with bicycle trips.

As we and others bike more and drive less, we're part of a movement that will benefit our lives, our economy and our community.

To join the AEP Team, send an email with your first and last name and your AEP e-mail address to Once you've been added to the team, go to "Your Profile," update your bio and log your first ride! Then spread the word. When we ride, we make a difference.

Riding for the Future

Enough Room for Everyone

Biking to work or for errands has many benefits. Bicycle transportation: -- keeps our motorized vehicles off the roads, reducing congestion and traffic-related pollutants; -- creates a community of riders whose example and encouragement leads others to try biking instead of driving; -- brings vitality to streets, roads and multi-use trails, raising awareness of alternative transportation; -- offers significant health and well-being benefits to riders, keeping bodies fit and minds sharp; -- and benefits employers, providing a workforce that's healthier and better prepared for the tasks of the day.

Riding Safely

Safety is paramount for all AEP employees, and bicycling is no exception. Employees who commute by bicycle must wear helmets and reflective clothing, as well as have proper front and back lights. As vehicle operators, bicyclists must also follow traffic laws, including obeying traffic signals/stop signs; using hand signals when turning, slowing and stopping; traveling with traffic; etc. Failure to bike properly is not only dangerous, but reflects poorly on all bicyclists in the eyes of motor vehicle operators.

Bike 'n Bus - Another Option

COTA's Bike 'n Bus service offers options for bike commuters. A thunderstorm on the way? Got a flat tire? Want to bicycle only after work? Bike 'n Bus enables you to jump on the bus with your bike! With your paid fare, your bike rides free safely on a rack at the front of the bus. If you live on or near a bus route, it's an option that opens up new possibilities in commuting and errands.
