George Oberst Dedication & Memorial Ride | Berea, Kentucky

Hosted by Trail Town Berea Ky and Berea Tourism.

The late community leader George Oberst will be remembered by friends, family and colleagues at an event on October 15 at 2 p.m. in Old Town, Berea. 

Oberst, who died in March 2016, left a positive and lasting impact on his community, said Mayor Connelly. “He was an avid advocate for sidewalks and some would say that he was an early, lone voice in Berea’s planning history, who cried out for sidewalks in subdivisions, not just on one side, but on both sides of the road. He played a large role in institutionalizing that rule, and now we think about sidewalks as routine and not as luxuries,” Connelly said.

Cyclists, I wanted to let you know that the Dedication of the GEORGE OBERST stone bench w/ plaque in Old Town Berea will be followed by the 2nd ANNUAL George Ride; ride will go to Kirksville Roundhill Grocery and back (total distance of 25+/- miles-shorter for folks that prefer a shorter out and back).
