On-line registration opens May 26 for the 2013 OwL Ride, set for Saturday July 13. Join thousands of other riders in Omaha and become part of the largest annual night bike ride between Chicago and Denver.
The fourth OwL Ride gives riders a choice of a 7-mile short course and 16-mile extended route. The family friendly short course will take riders from downtown into midtown Omaha. The extended course adds stops in Dundee and Aksarben Village. For veteran Owl riders, the extended ride is comparable to our main course from past years. This year’s route features a new starting point, the Old Mattress Factory at 12th and Cass, also the site of post-race food and festivities, and a new earlier 10 p.m. start time. Come join us on a cruise through the city with your nocturnal friends. It’s guaranteed to be a hoot.
With a non-competitive format and choice of courses, both casual and serious riders and families can enjoy the unique experience of the OwL Ride. In addition, you will help people in our community. The ride is a benefit for the Meyer Foundation for Disabilities, helping us to expand much-needed services for adults with disabilities in our community.
REGISTRATION: Registration won’t open until May 26. Check back in later with our registration page.
