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
bicycling 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 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 a.m.
Mail-in registration for all of these rides is $25 before July 24,
Proceeds from the ride benefit the Eastern Nebraska Trails Network.
