A Few Facts about BRAN from volunteer, Lee Lazure...
The 2020 BRAN will be 441 miles long starting at Hemingford, Nebraska near the western part of the state. We progress through the Sandhills Scenic Byway and end at Wahoo in the eastern part of the state.
The ride begins on Sunday, June 7th at Hemingford and has overnights in the towns of Hyannis, Thedford, Callaway, Ord, St. Edward, Shelby and ends on Saturday, June 13th at Wahoo.
We are targeting for 450-475 riders and will have a gravel ride as a part of the regular ride on the shoulders of Highway 2, which is one of the top 10 scenic by-ways in the United States.
Riders have options: a 3-day, 4-day or the traditional 7-day ride.
Last year we had three riders who have ridden in the Trans Am Bike Race (TABR) and we typically have riders from across the country do BRAN.
BRAN is a " Bicycle Ride by Bicyclists, for Bicyclists" and is a non-profit organization with proceeds going to scholarships for high school students from the host towns to attend Nebraska colleges, universities and post secondary education programs.
BRAN riders not only enjoy the scenic countryside of the state, but they meet and interact with some wonderful people from the rural communities within the state.
A discounted Pre-Registration ends on Monday, April 1st and registration for BRAN is open until May 22nd.
