The Kool-Aid Classic Bicycle Tour is celebrating the 10th year with a new course and more ride routes. The tour will be on Saturday, August 14, 2010 in Hastings, Nebraska. The event is sponsored by Hastings Unique Bicyclists (HUB) as a fundraiser for the Pioneer Spirit Trail, a 5.2-mile paved hike and bike trail. Routes of 20, 40 and 70 miles will be offered through the quiet countryside surrounding the birthplace of Kool-Aid.
