Any Central Ohio Teams?

Looking to do my 1st Ragbrai this year. Would love to have some fun folks to train and ride the week with. I have family in Iowa, so transportation is not needed for me. In fact, I may be able to offer our family farm as a meeting or rendezvous point if needed. I am game for either a self supported ride or using a charter. Just looking to have a fun time. Thanks!

Consider separating the 2 requirements. Find people to train with locally but go with an Iowa based team. You can find teams looking to fill out their roster on this forum usually after registration closes. Going the week with the team and using their camp is lots of fun. Iowa teams usually have a place to park your car for the week. Maybe look for an eastern Iowa team to facilitate your drive home. And you will have a whole tribe of new friends to hang with for the week of RAGBRAI.

I ride frequently around Madison County from Bradley High School near Hilliard. Would like to have company to train with. Rode Ragbrai last year and can give you some of the details. PM me if you are near Columbus.

I had thought about that. Ill be in Iowa with family anyway, so transportation isnt really an issue. Looking to make some new friends locally and have that carry over into and after Ragbrai.

Thanks Rob. I will look you up in PM. Im down near Grove City. I ride Camp Chase trail a lot. Kind of boring, but easy riding and very little traffic. Im open to new places. Just not comfortable getting on busy roads alone yet. Do you ride with Cyclenutz or any other area groups? My LBS does weekly rides, but its mostly roadies that like to roll at 20mph. Im not quite there yet. Lol.

Hey Matt and Hills Angels I am from Chillicothe, Ohio and ride a lot of Outdoor Pursuits rides in Columbus and surrounding areas for spring training. I am deciding soon on team vs charter this year or just solo again. An Ohio team would be of interest to me just to deal with logistics if needed. Let me know how to reach you Lebanon guys. I think the first GOBA tour went there that I rode in the late 80’s. As they say Ragbrai Don’t Care anyway!
