Bicycle Ride Across Nebraska (BRAN)

June 06 - June 12 2021
Omaha, Nebraska, USA

BRAN riders will experience small town hospitality and the beauty of the rolling terrain on the great plans of Nebraska.

The traditional Nebraska hospitality will be offered by the communities selected for the BRAN 34 route.

Rushville • Cody • Springview • Atkinson • Verdigre • Laurel • Lyons • Waterloo

BRAN has not stayed in Rushville since 2001. This will be the first time for them to be our starting host community. Being the first community places some additional responsibilities on the community. They are more than willing to provide facilities for the Rider Check In on Saturday, June 7th and the Rider Meeting. Rushville will be a great place to meet up with the BRAN family.

Only in 2004 has Cody been our host community. They frequently have been a lunch stop when BRAN takes a northern route. They are a small community with a BIG heart and requested BRAN to spend the night again.

Ten years ago, Springview was a host community. BRAN does not get this far up north often, so this is only the 2nd time for BRAN to spend the night in this friendly neighborhood.

Brand new to the BRAN family is the overnight in Atkinson. BRAN will find this thriving community worth the trip.

Verdigre with its charming city park will be a great place to pitch our tents. They have not seen the BRAN family spend the night but once in 2004.

Nestled off of the beaten path is the community of Laurel. BRAN has never even been through this community in the previous 33 years of BRAN.

The last overnight will be the honor of Lyons to host. They have seen the BRAN riders pass by their community several times. This year they are happy to see us spend some time and enjoy their hospitality.

Waterloo, one of BRAN’s favorite end points will be the site for the BRAN family to say their goodbyes until we meet again in 2015.

The BRAN Route Committee lead by Fred “Easy Rider” Jalass will be holding meetings with the community leaders during the month of November. Yes, the communities will already be gearing up the BRAN family visits – June 8th – 14th 2014.
