GABR “Long term Vision”

The GABR Steering Committee’s long-term Vision includes evolving into a regional event encompassing both “Family Friendly” non-competitive ridership, coupled with more experienced Peloton type ridership! As the “network” of local riding trails grows, please help us grow this event into a true celebration of recreational and competitive biking which places Butler County on the map as a biking center for Ohio! In so doing, you will directly impact the GABR’s Community Service efforts! Our Charter ensures 100% of all net proceeds are donated to local Charities!
