Who: Anyone who wants to ride a mix of gravel and streets and to gorge on a breakfast buffet
What: A ride to Platte River State Park for a quick breakfast, then back to Omaha. Plan for about 70-75 miles. Pace will be 12-18mph (a wild guess). Maybe slower on the climbs and faster on the descents. This is intended to be a social ride that moves swiftly enough to get some sweat flowing. Bring $10 for breakfast.
When: Sunday, 6am. We hope to be back by noon, at the latest.
Where: Wohlner's at Aksarben Village (Note: Aksarben Village has a farmer's market on Sunday. Be careful where you park, if you drive out. I've seen them tow cars to make room for tents.)
How: However you want. Chris and I will be on gravel bikes. I've seen awesome dudes do this on road bikes with 18mm tires, as well as beefy mountain bikes requiring twice the effort.
The "Express" refers to the quick breakfast, and not necessarily a prediction of the tempo. I need to be back in Omaha as early as possible.
Does anyone know if the Platte River pedestrian/bike bridge trail is open or not?
