Bicycle Ride Across Nebraska

Bicycle Ride Across Nebraska (BRAN) is a community service project of the Rotary Club of Omaha Northwest, with the assistance of the Omaha Pedalers Bicycle Club. Since 1980, this week-long tour provides an up-close and personal journey through the unheralded beauty and charm of Nebraska. This is a tour designed by bicyclists for bicyclists.

BRAN is an opportunity to bring people from rural and urban Nebraska together for a common cause. City folks and country folks too often don't get a chance to interact with each other. BRAN brings both of these groups together to explore all they have in common. BRAN riders often remark about the beauty of Nebraska - both its countryside and its people.
