The Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure (GOBA) kicked off its tour of Ohio in Mansfield, starting things off with a parade through the city. Participants started at the Richland County Fairgrounds and rode all the way to The Brickyard on Diamond Street, where they were treated to refreshments and a free concert.

"It was fabulous. You gotta come out," said Bill McClave, GOBA participant. "It's just great fun. There's all these riders in costume and on their bicycles, celebrating life, and celebrating the city."

Other participants had nothing but good things to say about their experience.

"It was a blast," said Gloria Haddad. "There were hundreds of people, it was like... critical mass in Mansfield. It was fun. It feels good to be waved at."
