Registration open for 2nd Buffalo Bill Rough Rider Gravel Grinder Race
Yeeee Haaaw! Saddle up and get ready to experience Nebraska’s Wild West at its finest this June 5th
Buffalo Bill epitomises this truly Wild West ride, through thick groves of trees, grasslands, paved and dirt roads across Lincoln County. You’ll also have the opportunity to experience one of Nebraska’s best mountain biking trails, Potters Pasture.
Buffalo Bill was made famous through his colourful Buffalo Bill’s Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World Show, which made him one of the world’s first global celebrities back in the late 1800’s!
There are three distances of 25, 60 and 120 miles to suit all abilities of cyclists.
