HOW DEFERMENT TRANSFERS WORK

A registration deferment from the canceled 2020 Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure can be transferred without a fee at any time from now until the start of GOBA 2024.

It’s critical that this process be followed in order to ensure proper records, communication channels, and liability insurance coverage is extended to the transfer recipient.

The buyer inherits all privileges and limitations of the GOBA 2020 deferment at the time of the transfer. The transfer is not official until the seller submits the online GOBA Deferment Transfer Form to Columbus Outdoor Pursuits.

Columbus Outdoor Pursuits will then issue the recipient a unique coupon code for a $0 registration, to utilize during the registration process. The seller and buyer will handle financial transactions between themselves.

A deferment grants the holder one fully paid GOBA registration in his or her choice of 2022, 2023 or 2024. There is no additional charge for the registration, even if the price of GOBA has increased.

Transferring a deferment

If there’s a transfer of a deferment, the seller must submit the online deferment transfer form by May 22, 2022, and the buyer must register for GOBA by June 5, 2022, to receive a spot in GOBA 2022.
