Sharing the Joy of Recreational Cycling

The Great Plains Bicycling Club is Lincoln, Nebraska’s recreational bicycling club. We organize rides in and around Lincoln, promote cycling and bicycle safety, and much more. We welcome all recreational riders to join us on our rides and in our other activities.


We want this to be a website that people in Lincoln and Nebraska can rely upon for information about recreational cycling. We want to know of any Nebraska-area rides that aren’t in our listings. If you are aware of a recreational ride that is not listed, please contact the webmaster and provide a description and other details.


Club Ride Season Underway

The 2017 GPBC Club Ride season kicked off Saturday March 18th with around 50 people riding the MoPac East trail from 84th Street to Eagle for lunch, socializing, and door prizes. Thanks to Scott Braly and Courtney Weeda for organizing the festivities. Club rides are now scheduled each weekend through the end of April. We’re sure you will find a ride to suit your fancy! And don’t forget Spring Fling is coming up on Saturday May 6th!

Nebraska 150 Sock Challenge

The Great Plains Bike Club is proud to announce the Nebraska 150 Sock Challenge.  In honor of Nebraska’s 150th birthday, the club has created bicycle socks featuring the club logo on one side and “NE 150” on the other.  GPBC members who ride 150 miles on Great Plains Bike Club rides (club and public) in 2017 can earn a pair of these socks.  The supply is limited and the socks will be arriving soon, so make sure your membership is up to date, and start keeping track of your miles now!

Summary of Member Survey Responses

GPBC would like to thank all of the members who responded to our on-line survey questions about your experiences and comments on the club and our activities. The club Directors reviewed and discussed your responses over the course of several board meetings. The responses to the questions were quite varied, and so we would like to share a summary of the results with you in PDF form. This file includes numeric breakdowns for the multiple-choice questions, and a sampling of written comments. We expect your feedback will help us in our continuing efforts to improve Great Plains Bicycling Club.
