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.
