The Great Plains Bicycling Club is Lincoln, Nebraska's social bicycling club. They organize rides, publish a newsletter, have club meetings and more. They also have an active bicycle education program which reaches over 1,000 kids and their parents each year. They invite you to join them on their rides and other activities.
In addition to a number of weekly and monthly rides (see their ride calendar), the Great Plains Bicycling Club also sponsored annual rides, including the Spring Fling (usually held in late April), the Firecracker 50 (on July 4th), and the Heatstroke 100 (in late August). In exchange for an entry fee, participants get a route map and T-shirt (or similar graft), and support is provided along the route. There are break stations with snacks and drinks provided, and there will be several roving support vehicles to assist riders with problems.
