Heatstroke 100

Hot and humid in August? You bet! What better way to beat the heat than to ride in the Heatstroke 100? The 2016 Heatstroke 100 ride will be Sunday August 28th beginning at 7:30 am, with registration at 7:00 am. The ride will start and end at the Strategic Air and Space Museum east of Ashland on Nebraska Highway 66 next to Mahoney State Park. From Interstate 80 take exit 426 and go 1/2 mile west on Highway 66.

The course consists of three loops: Loop 1 (24 miles), Loop 2 (35 miles), and Loop 3 (43 miles), all of which start and end at the Strategic Air and Space Museum. You can combine these loops to get distances ranging from 24 to 102 miles. The routes explore the scenic Platte River valley between Ashland, Greenwood, and Louisville. All routes are on paved roads except for 1/4 mile of limestone trail approaching the Lied Platte River Bridge; this short trail is suitable for road bikes. Several SAG support stations and roving SAG vehicles will be provided. All loops will close at 5:30 pm. In consideration of our volunteers, please plan your ride and stops to meet this deadline.
