This year’s TOSRV, scheduled for May 8 - 9, is expected to draw about 3000 riders for the 49th edition of this classic event. TOSRV is organized by Columbus Outdoor Pursuits (COP - www.outdoor-pursuits.org), an organization with a full range of noncompetitive outdoor activities.
Since the TOSRV route runs along the Scioto River Valley between Columbus and Portsmouth, our Saturday overnight location, it avoids the large hills of southern Ohio. The first 50 miles south of Columbus include some slight grades, and from mile 50 to mile 65 there are a series of short, steep hills. The remaining miles to Portsmouth are relatively flat for a total of 105 miles (169 kilometers) for the day. The Tour returns to Columbus on Sunday along the same route.
TOSRV is not for the casual cyclist. To enjoy TOSRV you should have ridden at least 400 miles during the two months prior to the Tour including at least one 75-mile day. In addition, you, your bicycle, and equipment must be in top shape.
If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results. Jack Dixon
