Hi Stephanie! I'm Kris and I ride in the Columbus area. Just got home from vacation and trying to catch up. My big cycling event is Pelotonia and I just got into cycling last year (I'm a newbie).

I'd love to do more but Saturday mornings I teach at the Y in Gahanna so I am out of most Saturday events. I can usually ride any Sunday though :)

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'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!

Bill....what's the name of the Ohio Team? spark team? Ohio in general or biking?

I'm in Marion and mostly ride in the Columbus area.

Keep an eye out on the Ohio team for more information of events that I'll be riding and looking for other Sparks to join in.

Keep posting events you'll be doing and I'll see if I can maybe join you.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

Hey! Just wondered how many Ohio riders on thie team (or even easter Hoosiers) What rides are you doing? anyone interested in getting a ride together sometime?

I live 45 min north of Dayton...close to Indiana border. Doing huffman classic tomorrow and the Troy strawberry festival next weekend. Planning on doing 2 day MS ride in Oregonia (near kings island ) in August.
