Heatstroke 100

Heatstroke 100 Start Location 28241-28343 W Park Hwy, Ashland, NE 68003, Lincoln, NE, United States

Hot and humid in August? You bet! But Nebraska cyclists have endured the heat and pedaled in scorching sun time and time again. What better way to beat the heat than to ride in the Heatstroke 100 — if you dare! (Just be sure to take advantage of the SAG stops along the way!)

Our annual late August public ride will again start at the Strategic Air and Space Museum east of Ashland on Nebraska Highway 66 next to Mahoney State Park. The course consists of three loops: 24 miles, 35 miles, and 49 miles. You can combine these loops to get distances ranging from 24 to 108 miles. The routes explore the scenic Platte River valley between Louisville and Ashland and range as far west as Ceresco. Several SAG support stations and roving SAG vehicles will be provided. A registration form and map are available for download at our Heatstroke 100 page.
