This unusual Trash Time Trial was new in 2019, and is back this year as the kick-off for the RRR Series. It combines all three of the tenets of the Series: Ride Fast, Do Good, Have Fun. Not only will you race against the clock, you will also participate in the clean-up of the gravel roads along the course. The event has two halves, a go fast half and a do good half. Riders will set off from a yet to be determined start location as a group like a normal gravel event. We will have a short neutral roll out and then riders will set out for a common destination at the turn around point. The out portion is timed on a set route, time determines placing. Drafting is not allowed but this is on the honor system so police yourself. The return trip is a self navigated open route. This second leg is not timed but instead finish placing is determined by the quantity of trash collected. There will be overall winners in Male and Female categories for Speed out, Trash back and Combined overall categories.

You can expect a small town grassroots gravel event with cue sheets, small towns, great gravel roads, a small town bar for our after party and awards ceremony. A true gravel roots style event, low key fun is the name of the game here so come prepared. Zero support, gas station checkpoint, gps routes highly unlikely. A Schmidty event with that deep gravel soul.

The Loess Hills Enduro brings the Midwestern spirit alive with a unique, challenging and scenic ride – with your choice of carefully-selected 100-km route tracing through the area’s signature gravel roads. The courses showcase the rugged terrain once followed by famous explorers Lewis & Clark and indigenous settlers headed down the Oregon Trail. You’ll experience where the West began through the rolling hills of prairie grass, cornfields, rustic barns and river bluffs. There are a few carefully placed refreshment stations along the way, but remember, this is a self-supported event so come prepared.

Do you like riding gravel? Do you like supporting a good cause? Did you go to the University of Nebraska? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this event is for you! The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Cycling Club presents the Husker Hundo, a gravel event with a 100-mile, 100k and 25-mile routes, plentiful sag stops, swag, food, and more. From the preliminary routes we have seen this would be an excellent first century attempt. The area features smooth fast roads and a low-ish climbing profile.

The Gold 100 mile route of this Gravel Race takes you through beautiful gravel roads around Lincoln. Part of the Cornhusker State Games. This event is known for changing it up annually. Always fun and well produced. Come shoot for your CSG medal or just have a fun day out on the gravel. Probably the event with the most on course support.
- August 1st
- Prague, NE
- 100 miles
Join us for a cycling adventure in the beautiful rolling hills surrounding Prague... Nebraska! This area is affectionately known as the Bohemian Alps. It was settled in the 1870’s by Czech immigrants from Bohemia. Nearly 150 years later and the Czech heritage is still alive and well. The 100 mile courses traverses Saunders and Butler counties’ gorgeous gravel and dirt roads. It's a tough one to be sure. The course has been known to buck more than a few riders off their steeds. Steep hills, deep gravel, double track and super technical MMR just finishing this course is an achievement. This is a free event so make sure to send that post card in early and then make sure you buy a custom printed Tee or bandana to support these great folks Russel, Rhino and Gina. This is punk rock gravel.

The 2020 Gravel Worlds promises an unparalleled challenge for the gravel enthusiast. The pirates are charting a route of approximately 150 miles and near 10,000 ft of climbing – adventuring through the rural farmlands of Southeastern Nebraska. This is the one that started it all. Riders from all over the world converge on Lincoln to compete for the "world championship" of gravel. While the front 10% of riders are duking it out for a podium place most of the riders are challenged to simply finish the 150 mile course.
This is the culmination of the RRR series. Awards will be held on the Worlds podiums so don't miss out on this one. Even if you can't participate it's a great party at the finish line.
