Columbus Outdoor Pursuits

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT DOING BUSINESS IN OHIO?

95 percent of our activities are in Ohio. We enjoy offering tours and activities that explore the great area of Ohio.

DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:

We were part of American Youth Hostel since 1937 and saw a need for organizing outdoor activities. The Mighty TOSRV (Tour of the Scioto River Valley) began in 1963 with a few riders, peaking in the 1990's with more than 6,000 riders. TOSRV is the oldest organized bicycle tour in the USA. Columbus Outdoor Pursuits has also been involved in canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, backpacking, and caving; including instruction in all these areas. In 1988, GOBA (Great Ohio Bike Adventure) was created with all the proceeds going to the Bike Development Fund. This fund has donated $1,000,000 toward the creation of the Ohio to Erie Bike trail. GOBA attracts more than 2,000 riders from all over the U.S. and for a week in June is the largest moving city in Ohio.
