Last Chance for Bacon Ride in 2010

Bacon Ride anyone?

This Sunday, September 26, is the last day that the Platte River State Park restaurant will be open for visitors. That means that it's the last chance for a Bacon Ride until next season.

Who? Anyone who wants to ride 74 miles of mixed bike paths, street and gravel for an all-you-can eat breakfast. Bring $10 for the buffet and a tip.

When and where? Meet at 6:30am Sunday at the Wohlner's in Aksarben Village. We should be back in Omaha by 1pm.

How? See the following maps and cue sheets for the routes:
The pace will be relaxed, and we'll try not to leave anyone behind. However, know your route and have a contingency to get home, just in case. Be prepared to fix a flat. Bring nutrition and hydration in case the ride goes long. It may be cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon.

Despite the Bacon Ride name, there are many options for vegetarians. :)

Thanks to MOD for the original Bikely map, on which this route is based.
