Our second annual gravel event is a bicycle ride on the gravel roads in and around Cass. County, starting and finishing in Eagle NE.(15 minutes east of Lincoln NE). The ride will be a fundraiser to try to help send 2 youth(1 boy and 1 girl) to Nebraska Boys and Girls State. Also, we would like to raise enough money to donate to the summer youth sports program in Eagle NE. You can expect great gravel roads, small towns, an awesome prize table and food/drinks at Bailey’s Local(bar in Eagle NE). Send in your postcard entries starting Dec 7th, 2020. Postcards can be sent to Legion Post 197 Gravel Mission 903 F st. Eagle NE 68347. Include your name, which event(100 mile or 50 mile). Your category if entering the 100 mile event. Categories for the 100 mile event are Women’s open, Men’s open, Women’s Military, Men’s Military and new for this year is a 2 person team. Please include your branch and unit if entering the military category.
Each Spring, Pirate Cycling League has mapped out a course incorporating some of the less-traveled gravel and minimum maintenance roads (MMR’s) in the surrounding counties and set aside a day to celebrate them with our friends. This years event will take place on Saturday, May 9.
It’s not a race, it’s an adventure. And we’d love to have you join us – everyone is welcome. There’s no entry fee (which is one reason we offer an unconditional money-back guarantee that you’ll have a great time).
But you will want to come prepared with all the gear you need (it is springtime in Nebraska, after all) and some doubloons (or some currency) to use as barter for replenishment – and for post-ride (last year we confirmed that grog DOES flow in the quiet hamlet of Palmyra).
