Spooks & Spokes Bike Scavenger Hunt Ride

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.

  • June 26th - Albion to Plainview | Approx. 51 miles
  • June 27th - Plainview to Ponca | Approx. 64 miles
  • June 28th - Ponca - Wisner | Approx. 58 miles

NUMB 2017  In its 22nd year of fighting hunger, the Nebraska United Methodist Bike Ride for Hunger (NUMB) has given over $854,000 around the world for those in need.  We are calling NUMB 2017 the “Saddle Up” tour as the ride will pass by many acres of cattle being finished for market.  We ask you to Saddle Up your bike and start this ride in Wisner, Nebraska, home of very large cattle feedlots and journey to Albion.  The next day we head north to Plainview and then east to Ponca, home base of the Froggys.  From Ponca we turn south and return to where we started in Wisner.

The official start of NUMB 2017 is the Saturday evening Rider’s Meeting on June 24th, but for those arriving early to Wisner there will be an optional pre-NUMB loop ride on Saturday morning, This will be a short warm up ride in the area before the actual NUMB ride starts on Sunday morning. Camping will be available in Wisner both Friday and Saturday evening.

NUMB is sponsored by the Great Plains United Methodist Conference Risk Taking Mission and Justice Team.

NUMB is open to all interested cyclists. You do not have to be United Methodist to participate in NUMB. The ride will be limited to the first 150 riders. Riders in the past have come from all across the nation as well as Nebraska to be a part of this ride.  Riders 18 years old and under must be accompanied by an adult, parent or guardian. NUMB will be challenging and riders must be in excellent riding condition and using quality biking equipment. Helmets are required. Participants must pay $55 for registration (after April 14th ‑ $60) and secure a minimum of $100 pledged to United Methodist Hunger programs. Registrants will receive pledge sheets and information about United Methodist Hunger projects upon registering.

Cyclists need to provide their own tents, multi-speed bike and gear needed for the trip. Helmets are mandatory. Following registration you will receive additional information including helpful hints on training and equipment.  The route is SAG supported. Nebraska Cycling & Fitnesss of Columbus will be on hand for repairs and parts. Designated camping sites are provided in each host community. Our NUMB Semi will transport your tents and luggage. Riders will park their vehicles in Wisner on arrival and pick them up again when our tour concludes. If you elect to stay in a motel on the tour, it is your responsibility to get to the motel with your gear and back to the campground.
