The Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure is a bicycle-camping tour and “an adventure on two wheels with 2,999 of your closest friends.” Held annually in June, GOBA features bicycle touring at a leisurely pace, for approximately 50 miles per day through some of the friendliest areas that Ohio offers.
The daily routes lead you to amazing tour attractions and welcoming food stops, while the overnights are spent being entertained by our host towns and camping under a blanket of stars. The week-long Adventure is perfect for you and your family, offering fun, Ohio hospitality, and a challenging and rewarding vacation.
GOBA is an event of Columbus Outdoor Pursuits, a non-profit organization devoted to non-competitive outdoor recreation. Visit outdoor-pursuits.org for activity and membership information.
On Friday, June 26, GOBA will be leaving Bowling Green and heading south on the Slippery Elm Trail, on the way to Deshler and Ottawa. From 6 am to 10 am the GOBA riders will have the option of stopping for breakfast at the North Baltimore Powell Elementary School, located just west of the SET on Cherry Street.
