Holiday Lights Ride

'Twas the nine days before Christmas and all through Cycle Works
Not a person was crabby, not even the jerks. The ugly sweaters were washed by the riders with Cheer (mostly because Tide is so pricey) in the hopes that the Holiday Lights Ride soon would be here. 

The wait is over, dust off your mittens and scarfs, decorate your bikes with garland and lights, grab the mistletoe and join us for our 3rd annual Holiday Lights Ride. We will meet at Cycle Works at 5pm for hot cider, cookies and socializing. The ride will leave at 6pm from the shop, we will take a tour through the Sheridan neighborhoods to take in the light and decorations before ending at Yia Yia's where you can enjoy pizza, cold beverages and great company. 

For your safety and others, lights (both front and rear) and helmets are required. We will be riding at night on the public streets and trails so please beaware of traffic and ride safely. This will be a social ride at a chit chat pace, cyclists of all skill levels are welcomed.

Tour of Dirt Roads

Pirate Cycling League’s Tour Of Dirt Roads

Each Spring, Pirate Cycling League has mapped out a course incorporating some of the less-traveled gravel and minimum maintenance roads (MMR’s) in the surrounding counties and set aside a day to celebrate them with our friends. This years event will TENTATIVELY take place on Saturday, May 6.

This year’s route will touch many of the same—really awesome—roads as last years’. Also like last year, we’ll depart from Taggart Park (the city park) in Palmyra. Otoe and Johnson Counties are where we’ll spend a great deal of the day; and they contain some real gems: dirt roads, burned out towns, old architecture, rolling hills, and more.

It’s not a race, it’s an adventure. And we’d love to have you join us – everyone is welcome. There’s no entry fee (which is one reason we offer an unconditional money-back guarantee that you’ll have a great time).

But you will want to come prepared with all the gear you need (it is springtime in Nebraska, after all) and some doubloons (or some currency) to use as barter for replenishment – and for post-ride (last year we confirmed  that grog DOES flow in the quiet hamlet of Palmyra).

The event/hang-time will be held at Ponderosa (Blackstone District), but we'll have folks from shops all over Omaha coming together for a great cause. Bikes and charity. 6-9p is the time. And yes, we will be working on bikes, but you do not need to do that yourself in order to partake in the fun. You don't even have to look at the bikes if you don't want to! Just you being here is support enough.

We'll have some beverages (keg o' beer likely), maaaaybe some food (not sure. anybody wanna donate?!), good tunes, and great folks. Recommended donation of $5 (or more! All proceeds go to CBPO) if you plan to drink a beverage or two. If you'd like to just hang around what is certain to be lots of bike shop geekery, that's fine too. So far we'll have folks from these Omaha shops:

The Bike Union / The Coffee Union
Ferguson's Bike Shop
Greenstreet Cycles
Olympia Cycle
Recycle Bike Shop

We're stoked to have these people on board, but we'd like to have more. If you work at a shop (or just like working on bikes!) and wanna come on down to hang, let me (Vince) know. Share and spread the word if you can! stuff@ponderosacyclery.com

Halloween Night Ride: Spooktacular Boocycle Ride

Halloween Night Ride: Spooktacular Boocycle Ride

Darkness falls across the land the midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of cycles, to terrorize y’all’s neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found without two wheels for getting ‘round
Must stand and wait for the next Gray Hound from hell and rot inside a corpse’s shell
The foulest stench is in the air the funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb are closing in to share your doom
And though you fight to stay away your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist the wares of the bike retailer


Pull on your costumes and get your bikes all gussied up and then come join us for our 2nd annual Halloween Night Ride. Prizes will be awarded to the top two costumes and the top two best decorated bicycles. 

We will gather at the shop starting at 4:45 pm and then roll out first destination, where we will judge the costumes and bicycles. A very loose schedule is this:

Meet at Cycle Works 4:45 - 5

Ride to Moran's for a beverage and the contest:5:30 - 6:15

Ride to White Elm for a beverage 7:15 - 8

Ride to Yia Yia's for brew and food 8:30 - til the caludrons empty.

Hitchcock Overnighter | Fall Ride N' Camp
Oct
28
to Oct 29

Hitchcock Overnighter | Fall Ride N' Camp

  • Ponderosa Cyclery + Tour (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Alrighty folks, we're gonna sneak one last campout in before it gets too cold! And before the leaves drop. The wonderful folks at Hitchcock Nature Center have agreed to host us at the group campsite once again (thanks, Chad!). As a reminder there are no bikes on the trail. Please be respectful of that.

Route Info: 20 mile route (40 total). Gravel and steep hills involved, so large tires are a must (sorry road bikers!). It's the end of October, so cold temps are likely (average lows in the 30s), be prepared for those conditions. We got rained on last year, so bring that gear as well. And lights! Sunset is at 6:24p. We'll have plenty of firewood and conversation to keep us warm and get us through the night.

Food/Meal Info: You'll be responsible for two meals at camp; dinner on Saturday night, breakfast Sunday morning. Both over the fire if ya want. We'll bring the s'mores. Of course, bring snacks for on the bike. We will be making stop at the Crescent Roadhouse (at about mile 15 along the route) for a beverage and afternoon snack on the way to camp; they're really nice, have bar food, a nice patio, and a jukebox! There's a Casey's in town as well. Both 'bout 5 miles from our final destination.

Cost: As always, these are free, but you are responsible for camp fees ($7) and food stuffs ($10? A billion? I dunno what or how much you eat!).

When: One'a them Saturday/Sunday deals here folks. Meet at the shop around 11:30a, roll at High Noon (12p). Shop will be open at 9a. And yes, it will be closing early, so I too can ride my bike. And camp. With you. If you're going. 

It is the Saturday before Halloween, so costumes are welcomed [encouraged]. And there will absolutely be storytelling around the fire. Ghost or not. Bring some good ones. I know a lot of folks already have party time, excellent plans in the city, but we'd rather spend it under the stars. Or clouds. But hopefully stars.

GPS can e found here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/20244057

So, if you wanna get in one last overnighter before you have to start shoveling yer driveway, come on out and join us. Deal? Deal.

Did I miss anything? I probably did. Email me as to what that is. Or if you have questions.

Thank you for your time. Have a nice day.

Sub24 Bike Camping Trip Wildwood Lake

These cool autumn nights are only going to get better and we're itching for a campfire. And we want you to enjoy that campfire with us. Join us for a ride out to Wildwood lake via gravel roads, a little over 20 miles. We'll leave from the shop at noon and plan on being back the next moring around the same time (why it's called a "sub24"). This will be a self supported ride, so you will be responsible for you, ie: bring what you need.

For those that may never have camped with their bike we will have a clinic before the trip, Thursday Oct 19th at 6:30pm, covering different types of bikes, gear, food, and other tips. Whether or not you have many bike camping or tour miles under your belt, come share what you've learned.

Snap Me Riding

Snap Me Riding

This event is dedicated to MTB'ers and Photographers alike! 

Let's be honest, we all enjoy seeing pictures and/or photos of ourselves riding our beloved mountain bikes. This event is designed to shed awareness on mountain biking in eastern Nebraska with the photography community, with a fun little twist of a game in store. An Amazon Gift Card awaits the winning photo, as chosen by the mountain biking community.

Here's a breakdown:
1. The riding starts @ 9 AM and will run til about 12 PM. The photographers interested in partaking can use the following map to preemptivly stake out where they'd like to set up shop for their photo's.:
https://www.mtbproject.com/trail/7030387
you may show up as early as you'd like to stake your claim for the best spot! There are approximately 60 different features so there should be plenty of space to find a good shot :) Most of the foilage should die out, but it might be a good idea to have jeans and a long sleeve shirt to protect from nettles and/or poison ivy. 

2. After the event, the photographers will post up to 10 photo's to OxBow Trail System's Facebook page to represent their qualifying photo's so the community can vote. They also can post links to online albums or their personal website to review all photo's that are optionally for sale (mountain biking community, this is a great chance to get a sweet photo and support local area photographers!). The winning photo will be the 1 selected by the community by November 1st. 

3. When 12 PM rolls around, there will be an optional gathering at BW's Pub & Grill for some good BBQ! https://www.google.com/maps/place/BW's+Pub+%26+Grill+%2F+Catering/@41.039608,-96.3702907,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x879401d82027bf29:0xb5c2cf15bf986e36!8m2!3d41.039608!4d-96.368102

Interested in cross but worried you don't have the right bike? Any bike w/o bar-ends is legal! (Bar-ends meaning the "horns" you might see on mountain bike handlebars. Bar-end/Bar-con shifters are OK!) My first season was on a bike with fenders and a rear rack. Lis did her first race on a fixie road bike!

We take you through everything you need to know to do your first race. And even if you don't want to race, we can teach you how to handle your bike safely in varying terrain and conditions.

BBBC supports the 2016 completion of the 19.5 miles of The Ponca "Standing Bear Trail" of Beatrice to the Kansas border. The Marysville, KS trail group has also completed its 13 miles. Once this project is finished there will be about 75 miles of trail with minimal traffic to use for bike riding.
