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, $35 after.
Proceeds from the ride benefit the Eastern Nebraska Trails Network.

Our riding group will meet on the southwest corner of 11th & Farnam at
7:45 a.m., then head down to the start area shortly before 8 a.m.
