“CONNECT by Listening, INSPIRE by caring, CREATE by taking action”
-Bill “Flash” Gordon
Bill Gordon lived his life by these words. His lifetime love of cycling and helping other people to become their best self, inspired his friends and family to create this annual event. Bill lived his life in service to others and continually worked to improve himself and to understand the world around him. As the Events Director for Columbus Outdoor Pursuits, he led bicycling activities throughout Ohio, including The Tour of the Scioto River Valley (TOSRV) and The Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure (GOBA). Bill felt strongly about living a life of purpose that had a positive impact on others. Bill knew that cycling brings people together and creates a community that supports a healthy lifestyle. With this ride we hope to share Bill’s love of cycling: the adventure, the friendships, and the scenic routes. Join us…
Life is scenic! Enjoy the ride!
