Why we ride.

Empower. Rebuild. Ride on.

The GOSH DARN was founded in 2015 by Dave Thienel and Greg O'Loughlin. Their love for the miles and miles of gravel roads, creek crossings, primitive camping, and adventure found everywhere in Hickman County inspired them to create a way to share the fun! In its fifth year, the GOSH DARN is Tennessee's longest-running gravel event. Just like in years past, the main event, GOSH DARN 5, will be a fundraiser for the Oasis Mountain Bike Team, a youth cycling team riding for the Oasis Bike Workshop. The team is comprised of international high school students, representing Egypt, El Salvador, Mexico, and America. (Check them out on All Things Considered) The Oasis Center's Bicycle Workshop has affected the lives of 3,000 youth in Middle Tennessee since its inception and we're honored to make contributions that help introduce youth to the joys of riding dirt.
