Shenandoah Lunch Ride, 120 miles, July 14

Shenandoah Lunch Ride in July

Mark your calendars for the Shenandoah Lunch Ride, Saturday, July 14, 2012.  This is a one-day 120 mile round trip from Omaha to El Portal in Shenandoah, Iowa.  The pace will be relaxed, but consistent with trying to get 120 miles in a day without it taking forever.  This is also the same day as the OwL Ride, so we all want to be back in time to participate in that late Saturday night.

Meet at the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge at 6:00 am.  We'll ride along the Iowa Riverfront trail, working our way toward the Wabash Trace.  From there it's about 45 miles of crushed limestone before gorging on tacos, burritos and baskets of chips and salsa.  Oh, and beer.

The way back is pretty much the same, except a little slower.  Who knows, maybe we'll do a celebratory dinner in Omaha.

There's no SAG support, so bring whatever you need to repair your bike and sustain yourself.  I'd wager that others can help out if you have a problem, but in the end, you're on your own.

There are some towns along the way where we can stop for snacks and water, but these stops can be 10-15 miles apart, so be prepared with your own nutrition and hydration.
