Spring Fling



Your bicycle has been pining away in the basement or garage all winter. So dust it off, pump up the tires, and join your cycling friends for the Great Plains Bicycling Club’s Spring Fling!

The course follows a route on paved roads between Eagle and Louisville, Nebraska, with rides up to a metric century (approximately 60 miles).

You can start either in Eagle or Louisville. There will be fixed SAG stations at each start/end point and in Murdock (approximately the half-way point of the full route), and roving SAG vehicles will patrol the route. Be sure to designate your starting point when registering. This will also be where any T-shirt or Combo T-Shirt/Bike Cap orders will be waiting for you.
