Tour de Nebraska is a fully sagged 5-day annual bicycle tour that is organized and hosted by Charlie & Kim Schiling with the support of TDN Founders Rich and Susan Rodenburg.

Tour de Nebraska is unique because it is a 5-day circle tour, which means riders enjoy the convenience of starting and ending at the same place. We keep our tour small, which allows for meaningful interaction between riders and the communities we visit. Our size also allows our team to provide excellent service to each and every rider! Our daily mileage ranges from 45-70 miles, making Tour de Nebraska an especially perfect multi-day tour for first-timers!

16th Annual Wear Yellow Ride, Run & Walk

  • Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

It’s our 16th Year! It will be amazing just like you, our supporters!

Wear Yellow Nebraska will be hosting the 16th Annual Wear Yellow Ride, Fun Run & Walk on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at the Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum, Ashland, Nebraska.

Costs:
We try to keep the cost of the event simple. From the opening of registration through March 31st, it’s only $35…that’s no April Fools! In the month of April, the price goes up $5 to $40. And On May 1st we go up $5 more to $45. You can register online until midnight on Sunday, May 5th. After that date you can register at any of the packet pick up events. So there’s some incentive to register early…like two Starbuck’s worth (in case it’s chilly on the day of the event!).

PROCEEDS
Your participation is making a difference. 100% of our proceeds support Wear Yellow Nebraska’s cancer fighting and cancer patient assistance programs. This event specifically supports the Wear Yellow Cab Ride Program.

Distances:
From a short cruise down the highway to a scenic loop over hills and countryside, you can experience the very best of springtime in rural Nebraska.

- For those craving roads, we offer 26, 32, 45 and 61 mile options.
- For those craving less formal roads, we’re excited to offer a new 27 mile beginners gravel option, and a 58 mile experienced gravel riders route.
- For those on two legs, we invite you to participate in the approximate 5K Run & Walk.

DEPARTURE TIMES & ROUTES
All routes depart from the Museum Durham Restoration Hangar.

7:00AM DEPARTURES

Ride & Run – Participants wishing to ride the 26 mile route and run/walk the Adventure 5K will depart at 7:00AM. You will need to complete the 26 mile ride by 9:50 AM to be ready to participate in the 5K Adventure Fun Run & Walk starting at 10:00AM.

61 Mile Route
A challenging route with rolling hills and plenty of scenery. Remember, it’s Nebraska and there will be a good headwind somewhere on this route. You earn a second set of pancakes for completing this route!
View the route here.

58 Mile Gravel Ride Route
For the adventure seekers that really want a workout. We’ve got gravel, minimum maintenance roads, hills, some trail and pavement, maybe a few farm dogs… but one heck of an adventure ride. Designed for riders who like their fat tire bikes, gravel and cross bikes, or their mountain bikes, this is the route for you. A semi-self supported route with one power stop through the farmlands of eastern Nebraska.
View the route here.

45 Mile Route
A good mid-length route for those who want to get a workout in, but not push it too far. Filled with rolling hills, and a few decent climbs that will make you work for those sweets at the power stop.
View the route here.

8:00AM DEPARTURES

32 Mile Route
The Perfect Route! A mix of everything, rolling hills, flats, a few good climbs, and great scenery through the Platte River Valley.
View the route here.

26 Mile Route
A good route to start the season with. If you took the winter off, and had to dust off your seat, this is a great route to start on.
View the route here.

27 Mile Beginners Gravel Ride Route
A good training ride. Filled with hills, decent climbs, a few Strava sprint areas, and a good distance.
View the route here.

10:00AM DEPARTURE

The Run & Walk
We don’t want the cyclists to have all the fun! No bike? No problem! Lace up your walking/jogging/running shoes to help fellow Nebraskans in the fight against cancer. The Run & Walk will start at the SAC museum hangar and follow an approximate 3.6 mile course through the wide open spaces of Mahoney State Park. While the majority of the route is paved, there is a short section between the SAC museum and Mahoney State Park that is grassy/gravel. A Power Stop will be included at the half-way point. New this year, we will have timing services provided by Be About. No Frills Timing Services. Fun prizes will be awarded for our top three male and female finishers. A Power stop will be included at the half way point.
View route here.

The event ends at 2:00PM. Courses and on course support, Expo Area, Power Stops and the Pancake Man will be closed at this time.

Please choose a route that you can complete by noon to take full advantage of the events at the start/finish.

VIRTUAL RIDERS
Maybe you don’t ride a bike, run, or like to go on adventure walks but know someone who does. Maybe you can’t participate this year but still want to support our cause. We’ve made that easy too! You can help support Wear Yellow Nebraska by registering as a Virtual Rider/Runner/Walker. You don’t have to actually ride, run, or walk, just support our organization and our event participants virtually.

The fee for Virtual Riders/Runners/Walkers is the same as an event participant. And just like our other participants, you will be making a difference. The fee for each virtual rider also supports one round trip cab ride through our Wear Yellow Cab Ride Program for a cancer patient who may not have adequate transportation to get to their treatments. Virtual Riders will also have the same fundraising opportunities as our event participants, including setting up your own fundraising team. You can register to become a Virtual Rider at any time up to the day of the event.

Holiday Lights Ride

'Twas ten 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. 

This year let's kick it up a notch, if you're up for some extra holiday cheer come to the ride dressed as either Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause, an elf or as a reindeer because how rad will it be to see a parade of Christmas Joy riding around Lincoln! This is completely optional, you can wear anything and we will still welcome you. 

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 4th 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 be aware of traffic and ride safely. This will be a social ride at a chit chat pace, cyclists of all skill levels are welcomed.
