In 2014 Dr. Tom Moffitt, OTET Board President, invited a group of friends to attempt to ride the Ohio to Erie Trail. At the time there was no complete map of the trail and we were actually scouting how to connect the various trails and traverse the larger cities. In 2015 a slightly larger group led by Dr. Moffitt rode the trail again proving that there was a continuous, viable route.
In a nod to the early Adventure Rides organized by Dr. Moffitt, a group of OTET Board members and friends are planning to ride the OTET during 9-15 September 2023. This will be a non-commercial, unsupported ride. There are no fees and every rider is responsible for their own logistics planning. We will follow the itinerary of Covington, Xenia, Columbus, Mount Vernon, Millersburg, Massillon, Akron, and Cleveland. The core group includes: Mike Groeber, Tom Alexander, Sandy Sanders, Ron Overly, and Bob Niedenthal. Anyone who wants to join us on this 2023 Moffitt Adventure Ride is welcome to ride along; you just need to show up in Covington on Saturday morning 9 September.
