Tour of Dirt Roads

As a reminder, the PCL ToDR event will take place Saturday August 9th at 8 AM. We're hoping for better weather and dry dirt on August 9th as the first scheduled ToDR was postponed due to rain.

The ride will be leaving from the D Street Hotel. Fifty to 60 miles of gravel and minimum maintenance/dirt roads around Lincoln. Prizes to follow event!

Date set for The Good Life Gravel Adventure

Saturday September 20, 2008 6 AM Lincoln, NE

With the cancellation of the 24 Hours of Landahl, the date has been finalized for The Good Life Gravel Adventure.

The route is still being determined, but will consist of roughly 150 miles of rolling gravel, minimum maintenance/dirt roads, a dash of crushed limestone, and minimal tarmac surrounding the great city of Lincoln. More details to follow soon....

The Good Life Gravel Adventure

The PCL will be hosting a gravel race/ride this late summer or early fall. Dates are being determined. The route will go through Crete, Wilber, Cortland, Denton, Malcolm, Valparaiso, Ceresco, Eagle and maybe a few more towns. The exact route and direction of attack are being determined. The final distance will be announced soon.

In keeping with PCL tradition and mission statement, there will be no entry fee. Riders will be required to purchase Nebraska Lottery Powerball tickets as proof of reaching a checkpoint (date and time are indicated on the ticket). Four lottery tickets should cover ya (not every town will be an official checkpoint). The local convenience stores will serve as the checkpoints which will also provide nutritional support for your $.

There may be some prizes, but no guarantees. Smiles and good times guaranteed. More to come...

As always, suggestions are welcome.

Tour of Dirt Roads - Rescheduled for Saturday August 9th at 8 AM!

Thanks to all that came out for the event. Official head count is....well, I dunno. I didn't get a count. Probably around 12 to 15 folks.

Since the weather didn't cooperate, we weren't able to hit any dirt roads. So the event has been rescheduled for Saturday August 9th at 8 AM. Hopefully by then all the dirt roads will be dry and we'll be able to hit several of them along with some gravel to get 50 to 60 miles in.

We've got plenty of sweet prizes to hand out such as a Larry the Cable Guy DVD (no, not VHS...DVD dawg!), a Frisbee (works great!), and lot's of stickers (to put on stuff!)! Wow! AWESOME!!!

PCL Tuesday Night Crit!

John takes the sprint finish.

Five (John, Kev, Troy, Jordan and myself) showed up and did laps on Tuesday night. Two fast laps with a sprint at the end. Small recovery for a couple of minutes and repeat. It hurt.

Janna and company showed up towards the end for Yoga session courtesy Lindsey. That was just as tough as the crit, but so rewarding. I could almost touch my toes afterwards.

We'd love to have more folks out there on Tuesday nights. Come on out and work on your cornering.
