Club Ride Schedule

Listed below are the upcoming rides sponsored by the Great Plains Bicycling Club as well as other local weekly rides. Regularly scheduled club rides typically start around St. Patrick’s Day (mid-March) and continue into November. We also usually have a short ride on New Years Day. All of our rides are non-competitive, recreational rides. For information about a particular ride please contact the listed ride leader.
We sponsor:

  • weekly training and social rides, mostly leaderless rides in the evening
  • rides proposed and led by a club member. We encourage any club member to propose and lead a club ride. If you’d like to, please contact any member of the Ride Committee.

We like to schedule a variety of member-led rides. Most of these are longer rides on Saturday or Sunday that may include a stop for a meal and bull session. These longer rides may be on area roads and highways, on area recreational trails, or gravel roads. But we also like to schedule shorter rides such as city trail rides, “ice cream” rides, and night “Full Moon” rides. But we are open to your suggestions of route, theme, pace, etc.

Rides sponsored by other organizations in the area are listed on the Other Area Rides page.

Please note that helmets are required on all club rides.
