Cyclists Rally for World Record Attempt

Although the 1023 cyclists who turned out for GOBA’s attempt to beat the world record for the largest bicycle parade came up a bit short, there was no shortage of enthusiasm and creativity in Wellington today. Parade participants were comprised of both GOBA riders and local cyclists and it appeared a good time was had by all. The Lorain County Fairgrounds has turned into a GOBA tent city filled with food, gear and cyclists of all shapes and sizes. WELCOME!

Parade participants really showed their spirit with colorful costumes and train-themed props to highlight this years “Last train to Gobaville” theme.

OK, well… maybe it’s still a couple days away but the snow is melting and I’ve seen a few hearty souls bundled up and pedaling like mad (or like a mad cyclist playing catch-up!) on Lorain County’s roads. I actually saw two people in Oberlin riding in the midst of the snowstorm we had a […]
