Tomorrow will lead us unto the realm of better weather, and I'm going to holding a impromptu gravel ride of 42 miles with 1800 ft of elevation gain. Expect 60% gravel. We will be shooting off from the shop at 8:30. It will be a no drop ride and a casual roller. We are planning on being back at the shop by 12:00, which will give you ample time to rest before the birthday party that night.

Also, if you haven't heard yet, next week I will also be starting my gravel ride on select Saturdays (most commonly going to be twice a week) in order to train for races like Dirty Kanza, Gravel Worlds, Odin's Revenge, etc. We will be exploring some of the most rural areas of Iowa and Nebraska in order to find some of the most thrilling hills and backroads. I highly encourage anyone to participate who is interested in an adventure and an escape from city life.
Your friendly Greenstreet employee,
This year is going to be filled with fun and exciting group ride action. Beginning in March, we will be leading out several group rides. These rides will be starting in March. Additional rides are in the works as well, so check in periodically and our Group Rides blog will keep you up to speed.
WAM! - Wednesday Afternoon Mountain Rides - Weekly rides to different MTB parks, weather permitting. Details to come on this page.
Greenstreet Gravel Goons - Select Saturday Mornings - This ride will show you routes that will have you winding, climbing and grunting through the back roads of Iowa and Nebraska. This will be the perfect ride to help you train for gravel endurance events such as Dirty Kanza, Gravel Worlds or the Omaha Jackrabbit. Details will be posted in advance on this blog.
Sunday Adventure Brunch / Lunch - Each Sunday we will lead out to a new destination town. Examples range from downtown Papillion, Nebraska to Woodbine, Iowa. Distances will generally start out smaller and increase as the season progresses, with one or two stretch rides each month. Shorter rides will feature brunch in Downtown Omaha upon our return while mid distance rides will have a brunch stop in our turn-around town. We won't get to our stop town until lunch on some of our longer rides, so plan on an all-day adventure for some of our longer ( 60-75 mile + ) distances. Details posted in advance on this page.
