Distances: 3 loops of 24, 35, 38 miles
Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs
Limited to: No Limit Participants

The road route consists of three loops (24, 35, and 38 miles), each starting and ending at the museum. You can ride one, two, or all three loops (in any order). Ride day registration starts at 7:00 am, and the ride starts at 7:30 am. The course will close at 5:30 pm (so our volunteers can get home at a decent hour after a long day!).

Water and snacks will be available at three SAG stops along the road routes and at the SAC Museum. Roving SAG support will also be provided.

The trail connecting the Lied Bridge to Hwy 31 on the north side of the river is about a quarter mile of limestone surface (freshly reconstructed to repair flood damage). The four-mile stretch of Hwy 31 (Loop 3) from the north Lied Bridge trailhead to Hwy 50 parallels the MoPac Trail. Riders are welcome to use either the highway or the trail on this stretch.

If you want to get closer to the corn and the cows, we have a  gravel route starting and ending at the same location as the road routes (SAC Museum) and including all of the road route SAG stops. The total distance is around 54 miles and includes gravel roads, a section of the MoPac Trail including the Lied Bridge across the Platte River, and some short highway sections needed to connect everything.

Hot and humid in August? You bet! But Nebraska cyclists have endured the heat and pedaled in scorching sun time and time again. What better way to beat the heat than to ride in the Heatstroke 100 — if you dare! (Just be sure to take advantage of the SAG stops along the way!)
