The sky's the limit and the stars will be in reach when you join us June 19 - 26, 2021, on a bicycling voyage to the region that produced the pioneers behind two of the world's biggest achievements.
You'll have plenty of opportunities to learn about the Wright Brothers, who built and flew the first successful airplane, and Neil Armstrong, who made a giant leap for mankind as the first man to step onto the moon.
GOBA cyclists can visit the Armstrong Air & Space Museum during our stay in Wapakoneta, and the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force when we're camped at Troy. Flights aboard a vintage biplane will be available at the WACO Air Museum in Troy.
Many other attractions lie along the way as we roll along a large loop from Sidney to Wapakoneta to Versailles to Troy, then back to Sidney.
In Sidney, the GOBA kickoff party will be held in conjunction with an arts festival. During our layover day in Wapakoneta, an optional ride will go to the Bicycle Museum of America in New Bremen. Versailles beckons with its French heritage and beautiful sculptures, plus a fine camping area at Heritage Park.
On GOBA you set your own pace while making memories with family, friends and up to 1,500 other riders. The itinerary is designed to showcase the area's treasures, both natural and man-made, for cyclists of all ages and interests.
Once again, GOBA will have four "mandatory" riding days and three layover days, giving you more opportunities to sightsee, do optional rides or just sleep in.
GOBA also gives you more choices on how far to ride. Want a challenge? Ride every day on fully supported routes, including an optional 100-mile century test, for a total of about 400 miles. Looking for less? Skip the three layover day rides and use our new, supported shortcuts on the four routes between host towns to reduce the distance to about 35-40 miles on each mandatory day, or about 150 miles for the week.
