I am from the Columbus area. I would like to do GOBA some year, but trying to work out a week to do it is hard since my husband and son do not really bike. So, for now it will be just one, maybe two day rides for me.

Stephanie, Last year I did my first bike ride since I was a teenager and went five miles. By the end of summer I made it 50 miles-all on a mountain bike! This year, I'm hoping to survive GOBA, but I'll just do the best I can. I'm getting a touring bike this week, so I'm hoping that will help me manage the hills better than my heavy mountain bike! However I do, I'll be sure to have a great time doing it...

I wish I had the ability to get off work to do GOBA...I plan on it someday! I pretty much got to stick to weekend rides. The part of Ohio that GOBA is going through should be beautiful! I hope you all have a wonderfaul and safe adventure!
I am from NW Ohio (Toledo) The big event for us is Bike to The Bay June 26-27th it is a two day event 75 miles each way. Starts in maumee, Ohio and ends in Port Clinton Ohio, which is right on lake Erie.The first day in going to Port Clinton and the second day is riding back to Maumee. Anyone else registered?
I'm in Ravenna, near Akron. My big ride of this year will be GOBA-the Great Ohio Bike Adventure. It's in southeastern Ohio this year, so I'm a bit scared of the hills! I'll do my best and have a great time doing it!!!
magellen....my sis lives in Brunswick and my Mom in wooster. Our bike club has a "chapter: up there that does monthly time trials (near aurora area i think). I bring my bike up that direction when i come to vist....tons of great bike trails!
the club is colavitaohiocycling.com (i think) you don't have to be great or fast to ride the time trials either!
