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!) And even if you don't want to race, we can teach you how to handle your bike safely in varying terrain and conditions.

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.
