Bacon Rides are Back! 60 Mile Mixed Pavement and Gravel Ride, Sunday, June 2

Sunday is the day after the Dirty Kanza 200 gravel race, as well as some MTB races, and if you're back in town looking for some more gravel at a non-competitive pace, join in for an Omaha Bacon Ride.  There are a couple of really good hills where you can shoot for a new Strava PR or KOM.

What: Bacon Ride!  30-ish miles of mixed gravel and blacktop to Platte River State Park for a breakfast buffet, then 30-ish more back to town. 

When: Sunday, June 2, 2013.  Meet at 7:15 am.  Roll off at 7:30 am.

Where: Aksarben Village, near 67th St and W. Center Rd [ map ]

Pace: 12-18 MPH, depending on the will and ability of the group

Notes: Bring a gravel roads capable bike.  Be prepared to fix a flat tire.  Have enough fluids to last for 2-3 hours at a time.  Bring about $15 cash or a credit card to cover your breakfast and a tip.  Due to the Aksarben Village Farmer's Market, if you drive, be sure to park somewhere where you won't get towed.  The free parking garage is always an option.
