Check out this weeks route for our Tuesday Night Amateur road ride! Riders will get to see some of Council Bluffs trail system and will get to enjoy a pit stop at Christy Creme! The ride will leave from Greenstreet Cycles at 5:30/5:40
Meet us at the shop this Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for a beautiful ride to Bennington, Nebraska! We should be back at the shop between 1:30 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.
We'll eat at the Warehouse, the only establishment open in Bennington on Sundays other than the gas station and Runza. We tested this place and it's sure to give us an authentic Bennington experience.
We're forecast to have beautiful riding weather. No promise on wind but we usually get a tail wind at least one way. This week's ride will be right at 40 miles including a slow roll down Bennington's historic main street. We will take a vote as to whether to ride around Bennington Lake, works the meal off a bit and add five miles.
Here's a route map. To head back we'll take a similar route but stay on Rainwood and 96th St instead of through Cunningham and Bennington Rd.
Greetings to all. Tomorrow we will have a special service - short and early. We will leave the shop at 9 a.m. and head out to Hazel Dell Methodist Church in Hazel Dell Township, IA.
This will give everyone time to relax and enjoy the Easter Holiday.

"Great" pic from last week's ride, sorry if you're one of the riders cropped out due to the friendly local "photographer"...
