Remembering Charlie Pace

Longtime TOSRV Director, Charlie Pace, passed away May 15, 2021 at the age of 90. Charlie’s 50+ years of leadership of TOSRV was the foundation of the bicycle touring industry in the United States. His year-around, daily, and indefatigable work on TOSRV was inspirational. His humble demeanor attracted scores of volunteers and set the spirit of love that permeated TOSRV.

Outdoor Pursuits has created a Charlie Pace Memorial Fund to place a bench/table/structure in Yoctangee Park to honor Charlie’s 50 year leadership of TOSRV. To support this memorial, please make an additional contribution in the appropriate field during your TOSRV registration.

If you’d like to support this memorial (without registering for TOSRV) please donate on our general donation page here.

Here is a nice article on Charlie from 2010 in the Short North Gazette.
