The Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure rides into town this weekend, and brings a boost to our local economy with it.

The 26th Annual, seven day, 300 mile cycling tour begins and ends right here in Mansfield. More than 2,000 participants from kids to adults will take part in the tour which involves camping and cycling over the course of a week through Mansfield, Orrvillle, Coshocton, Mount Vernon and Bucyrus.

Cyclists will camp at the Richland County Fairgrounds while dining and shopping at local establishments. Approximately 150 thousand dollars will be pumped into our local economy.
