The 24th Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure (GOBA) will bring over 3000 bicycle riders into our part of the state this June. The annual event will begin and end in Hillsboro on Saturday, June 16, 2012 with a day of celebration and fun for everyone.
Hillsboro mayor, Drew Hastings, has declared the day to be the beginning of a “Summer of Love” and has planned a huge bicycle parade composed of GOBA participants and anyone with a bike who wants to join in. There will also be music, dancing, food, and a huge wedding ceremony for all those wanting to get married for the first time or wanting to renew their vows. The mayor will reside over the ceremonies using his authority as a civil magistrate. All present will be offered a piece of “the world’s longest wedding cake.”
On Sunday GOBA riders will depart Hillsboro for Chillicothe, and other communities, arriving back in Hillsboro on June 23. On Wednesday and Thursday of the week there will probably be some GOBA traffic in and around Greenfield from those participating in an optional loop on those days.
