MIDWEST TANDEM RALLY - MTR 2017
September 1st – 4th 2017
GREATER OHIO AREA TANDEM SOCIETY (GOATS), welcomes you back to Ohio. In 2013 we were in southwest OH and now we would like to introduce you to central Ohio. Our host city is Dublin, a suburb of Columbus. Dublin is a bike friendly town with many trails available for leisure riding and checking out the town.
Our host hotel, Marriott Northwest, is three miles from historic old Dublin. The Marriott is a beautiful hotel and is a full service hotel. For those interested in breakfast before heading out to ride there is plenty of seating room and they will be ready to serve us.
The hotel will start accepting reservations October 1st 2016.
The planning team has had meetings at the Dublin Village Tavern for those of you who might be interested in local cuisine. A disclaimer for DVT, the owners are cousins of Chuck and Pam. We have also met at their other restaurant, Liberty Tavern in Powell, about 9 miles from the Marriott. We can vouch for the quality of the food at both places. There are other local restaurants in the area as well worth trying.
In addition to the local flavour, there are many of the well-known chain restaurants very close and many within walking distance of the hotel. Plenty of selection no matter what the size of your group.
Now that we have covered the important issues first, lodging and food, let’s talk about the fun part, the ride! Central Ohio is relatively flat with gently rolling hills. After guiding you through some local neighborhood streets, you will be in the country cruising along. Relax and enjoy the ride.
No matter the weather, we have secured inside, air conditioned, with tables and seating for the rest and lunch stops. Plenty big enough for visiting and relaxing a bit before heading back out on to the beautiful country roads to finish your ride.
Stay tuned, watch for changes and updates.
We look forward to hosting you in Dublin OH for MTR2017.
