If you have been part of OBS for any length of time you already know John Wente. But for the sake of all the new folks I want to introduce him!
John Wente started cycling around 1978 and joined the OBS in 1992. It wasn’t long before the OBS made him president in 1997 and has been our membership chairman since 1999.
If there was a position of map master that would be John. John has created and loaded most of the maps you see on the OBS website. He says he thinks in the range of 55 to 60 maps. So when you print off a map and enjoy that route you can thank John!
John is always quick to help new folks. His favorite thing about OBS is the people and our camping and cycling weekends.
John encourages all the OBS members to remain active and wants to see some even younger cyclists get involved in the club. John is dedicated to making sure there is a place for everyone to ride no matter what their expierence level.
You can ride with John on Wednesday nights as he leads the 12- 13 mph group out on a 22 mile ride at 6:00 pm from Route 66 park at Lake Overholser.
