  Geared towards bicycles--but INLINE SKATES WELCOME!  I did this last year and LOVED it! If you
cannot come for all 4 days, you can register for the days you can attend.  Centered in Xenia, OH.
Go a different direction each day.  Kayaking and canoeing also an option!
The people who ran this event were fantastic and VERY FRIENDLY.  Very much a "family" event.  Camp
at the County Fairgrounds (included in the registration!) and there is a GREAT POOL there as well!
Please get the word out about this event!  Registration is open NOW.
