Corporate Cycling Challenge
Last year, a group from the Omaha Ski
Club participated in the annual
Corporate Cycling Challenge. We'll be participating again this year.
We'll be entering on an individual basis in the Open division.
The Corporate Cycling Challenge is Nebraska's largest one day
event. Normally, several thousand riders participate. It starts and
ends at the Heartland of America Park (8th and Farnam St)
in downtown Omaha. Three different ride lengths are available -
42 miles, 25 miles and 10 miles. The 42 mile ride is a challenging,
hilly adventure from Omaha to Fort Calhoun and back,
which starts at 8 a.m. and which most participants finish between 11
and noon. The 25 mile ride is from Omaha to the Forest Lawn Cemetery
and back; some hills, but easier; it starts at 8:30 a.m.
Most riders get this done in about two or two and a half hours.
The 10 mile ride is an easy, flat ride around Carter Lake and the
Omaha riverside which can be done in an hour or less; starts at 9
Registration for all of these rides is $25 before July 23, $35
Proceeds from the ride benefit the Eastern Nebraska Trails Network.
Link to brochure with mailable registration form (page 2).
Further details about the ride can be found at
Online registration ($28 before July 23, $38 after) can be found at
Our riding group will meet on the southwest corner of 11th & Farnam
7:45 a.m., then head down to the start area shortly before 8 a.m.
