Great Ohio Bicycling Adventure (GOBA) Pedals into Mid Ohio June 2014
Have you heard of GOBA? No, it isn’t some new trendy dessert. If you registered to participate, it actually might work off your dessert!! GOBA stands for Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure and is an event of the Columbus Outdoor Enthusiasts in which riders bike about 50 miles a day across the scenic, hilly, and beautiful Ohio outdoors. It’s been around for 26 years and is happening this year from Saturday, June 14-21, 2014!
Pedalists will ride through Mansfield, Orrville, Coshocton, Mount Vernon, and Bucyrus. Of GOBA, their website states that it’s “a bicycle-camping tour and an adventure on two wheels with 2,999 of your closest friends.” If you like biking and the outdoors, a full-weekend seems to be scheduled. Not only will bikers ride through gorgeous summer scenery, but through quaint towns where bikers will be welcomed for food, events, hospitality, and fun.
In Bucyrus, located in Mid Ohio, there will be attendants to answer tourism questions, deals at various merchants, live music, and there will be convenient shuttle stops to the town’s best attractions, including the Crossroads Candle factory, the Picking Copper Kettle factory, and Beran Metal to name a few for a small charge. At the Bucyrus County Fairgrounds, there will also be a community event with vendors, food, and fun. You can visit the page here on the Bucyrus Area Chamber of Commerce website for more information.
Check out the beautifully artistic and life-like murals in downtown Bucyrus!
There are many other fun things happening in the other towns on the tour as well. Just click here on the GOBA website to schedule your stops along the way if you have joined the adventure or if you aren’t head over and cheer on the bicyclists.
