Event Info

Thanks to all our riders who have once again made Omaha’s OwL Ride the largest annual night-time ride between Chicago and Denver. We had a great turnout and a great time, and once again raised tens of thousands of dollars to help people with disabilities in our community.

Congrats to the Dundee Chain Gang for once again taking home the Parliament Cup for the group registering the most riders.

A special thanks to all of our sponsors whose loyal support made the whole event possible. Tell your friends about it and spread the word so we can make the 2015 OwL Ride still bigger and better.

The OwL Ride gives riders a choice of an 8-mile short course and a 16-mile extended route. The family friendly short course takes riders from Omaha’s riverfront into midtown Omaha. The extended course continues through the heart of Dundee and Aksarben Village before returning downtown via Field Club. Come join us on a cruise through the city with your nocturnal friends. You’ll see the city in a new light–by streetlight, moon light and star light (Omaha with Lights, the origin of the OwL name).

With its 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, and it has helped us  significantly expand programs and activities for people in our community with developmental disabilities. See how your registration helps to improve the quality of life and promote inclusion for teens and adults in greater-Omaha with developmental disabilities:
