Bike MS: Nebraska Ride will take you farther than you've gone before. Enjoy a 1-day or 2-day cycling adventure and ride from Omaha to Lincoln where a celebration awaits you at the finish. You'll find an unforgettable experience, complete with food, beer, entertainment, and more.

On Saturday, take your pick of 25-, 60- or 100-mile route options and, on Sunday, 50 miles, all cheered on by the most spirited volunteers around. You can ride both days or either day! There will be a bus back to Omaha on Saturday night leaving Lincoln at approximately 6 pm that you can use for a small $10 fee.

To make your ride a safe and memorable one, the routes feature well-stocked rest stops every 8-12 miles and are monitored by a route support team consisting of HAM radio operators, support vans, motorcycle patrol, law enforcement, EMTs, and mechanics from our partner bike shops.

In addition, you will experience an incredible level of camaraderie as you embark on a journey filled with laughter, excitement, support, and a profound sense of accomplishment. Your participation drives us closer to a world free of MS by funding critical research and services that change the lives of people affected by MS.

2018 Fall Wabash Ride and Camp (or Hotel)
Sep
22
to Sep 23

2018 Fall Wabash Ride and Camp (or Hotel)

  • Wabash Trace Nature Trail (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Ride your bike on Saturday from Omaha/Council Bluffs to Shenandoah and spend the night camping outside, in a lodge, or in a hotel room. Wake up Sunday and ride back to Council Bluffs.

Some will camp. Some will get a hotel. Some might even have a friend drive, meet for dinner, and hitch a ride back. Some might make a shorter option, or just ride along for lunch along the trail. You can customize this any way you want.

Mileage: 
Council Bluffs to Shenandoah: 45 miles

The ride is very flat. The event is open, so feel free to invite your friends. There are opportunities to stop for food and refreshments along the way. There is no official support. There will be no support, other than what you get from fellow riders, friends you can call, or what you can buy on the route. Some might be making arrangements to have someone drive gear down, but you'll need to work that out among yourselves (watch the event posting for more information on unofficial support).

We will be asking for a donation to cover the lodge rental. Any funds collected that exceed the rental fee will be given as a donation to the trail foundation. However, if you can't afford to give, it's no problem. We'd rather you come and ride.

There will be more details coming, but we wanted to go ahead and get the date on your calendars.

Spooks & Spokes Bike Scavenger Hunt Ride

We've had a lot of requests for a trail ride.... and well you know we don't just do the average ride, so let's go on a scavenger hunt! 

Get your team of two ready for our first, scavenger hunt bike ride through the trails of Omaha. 

Details:
Team Size: 2 People

Cost: $40 per team, includes event T-shirt... and maybe some surprises.

Time: 12:00 PM - Yes, we know it's a Husker Game Day and we will have the game on in the brewery (let's hope for an evening game).

How's this going to work: at 12:00 PM, teams will be given a number of questions, this could be like a test, a crossword puzzle, a fill in the blank... you'll find out at 12:01. You'll have to answer these questions to identify the locations you need to go to in Omaha to collect an item, perform a task, or share that you were there to collect points. To get to these locations you will need to ride the Omaha Trail system and possibly a few neighborhoods. There will be no riding on major streets like 72nd, 96th, Center, Pacific...etc. All teams will need to return to Pint 9 Brewery with the items they've collected from the various stops by 3:00PM. We will then see what top three teams have accumulated the highest number of points and declare our winners! 

Post Event Fun: Pint 9 beers, The Dire Lion Food Truck, and hundreds of your bike friends for a post ride party.

Registration: Register early, as those who do may get a few more details about the event... before the event! T-shirt deadline is October 1st.

3rd Annual Big Lake Camping, Adventure and Cycling Weekend
Sep
14
to Sep 16

3rd Annual Big Lake Camping, Adventure and Cycling Weekend

What:  A fun camping weekend with your friends, family and other cyclists in Northwest Missouri with cycling through Missouri, Nebraska and Kansas.

When:  September 14th, 15th and 16th, 2018.

Where:  Big Lake State Park, 204 Lake Shore Drive, Craig, MO 

Why:  Bring your family and friends to a fun weekend of camping, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, food, cycling comradery and fun at Big Lake State Park.

 

About Big Lake State Park:

Because the Missouri River meanders throughout the region, large areas of sediment are often left after floods as the river changes course.  These will occasionally reroute the river leaves shallow standing water in the loop called an Oxbow Lake.  These 180 degree curvatures represent the bow part of an oxen yoke. 

Big Lake is the largest remaining oxbow lake in the state of Missouri, and was probably formed around 1804.  The initial lakefront was purchased by the state in 1932, creating one of the first public state parks in Northwest Missouri. 

Today, the park is surrounded by very large Cottonwood and Walnut trees, has a very diverse ecosystem, and is a layover for migratory birds. 

In addition, the state of Missouri has made recent updates to the park after the area was flooded in 1993 and again in 2011.  These facilities include a modern shower house, on-site cabins, and well as drive through camper areas with power and water. 

With the recent addition of the nearby Rulo, NE Missouri River Bridge, the idea was put together by some friends to have an end of season cycling adventure at Big Lake State Park. 

More information and maps for the Big Lake area can be found at:  https://mostateparks.com/park/big-lake-state-park
