Trail Trek

Trail Trek 2021

10 MILES  - Start time 10:15 a.m.
For the first time we are able to offer our shortest riders that chance to experience Pioneers Park. The ride to Pioneers Park has been a fan favorite for years. Come join us as we ride from our new start line at Speedway Village (345 Speedway Cir - off of West VanDorn). You'll connect up with the Bison Trail all the way into the the park and have a rest stop at the playground. Hang out and we'll have a cheat sheet for you at packet pickup with fun family idea you can enjoy in the park. If you'd like to extend your ride we invite you to visit the new GPTN Connector Bridge (additional 4 miles round trip). Because of Trail Trek we have this grand bridge to connect our suburban and urban trails. We'll see you back at Speedway Village for lunch starting at 11:00 a.m. Don't forget your helmet - they are required. Note: This route has a mixed surface. You will encounter a short ride on limestone while on the Salt Creek Levee Trail.


20 MILES - Start time 9:30 a.m.
The ride starts out at Speedway Village (345 Speedway Cir - off of West VanDorn) and takes you immediately south to the new GPTN Connector Bridge on the Jamaica North Trail. Take a minute to get on the bridge and peer down at the railroad tracks enjoying the expanse of this massive structure. You’ll leave the bridge and head out past Dinsmore Park on your way to the Tierra Park - Williamsburg Trail where you’ll pass by a neighborhood park while you dodge ducks and geese that call this area home. You’ll exit the Tierra-Williamsburg Trail on to Rock Island Trail at 27th Street and Hwy. 2. You’ll pass by the Lincoln Children’s Zoo taking the trail under 27th Street to the Billy Wolff Trail. A rest stop is planned at the Jayne Snyder Trails Center just off the Antelope Valley Trail with a chance to use the restroom, pick up snacks, fruit and some water. The trek continues north on Billy Wolff to its juncture with the Salt Creek Levee Trail. Riders will turn west on Salt Creek Levee Trail, and proceed to the Breslow Ice Arena. You’ll ride over the Lincoln Bridge, through the Haymarket Park parking lot and proceed south over the pedestrian bridge, doubling back at the base to the juncture with the Arena Trail. This route will give you a chance to see the area the future Beutler Trail will be built and then continue on to the Jamaica North trail on the way back to the Speedway Village in time for lunch. This route has a mixed surface. You will encounter a short ride on limestone while on the Jamaica North Trail until you reach the GPTN Connector Bridge - about 2.5 miles.
