The Great Plains Bicycling Club is Lincoln, Nebraska’s recreational bicycling club. We organize rides in and around Lincoln, promote cycling and bicycle safety, publish a newsletter, 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.

National Bike Challenge Starts 1 May 2015
The National Bike Challenge is a nationwide event uniting thousands of current bicyclists—and encouraging countless new riders. In its simplest form it is a logging center for users to record miles ridden and be part of the national community of bicyclists. It is a free and easy way to challenge yourself, colleagues and the greater community to ride more. Users compete on a local, state and national level. The Challenge aims to unite 75,000 riders to pedal 35 million miles from May 1, 2015 until September 30, 2015. National Bike Challenge website
