The Good Life Gravel Adventure - Updates!

The second annual The Good Life Gravel Adventure is less than a month away! The PCL crew recently completed some recon and we're happy to announce that the course has being finalized! I am currently working on the cue sheet for the event.

NEW IMPORTANT INFO: I will be posting the cue sheet the week prior to the event. All participants are encouraged to make their own cue sheets (allows you to format to your liking). I will have cue sheets available at the start if you don't make your own.

We will begin and finish the event at the Mopac Trail Head (84th Street) in Lincoln, Nebraska (same spot as last year). The Mopac Trailhead is located at 600 S 84th Street in Lincoln, Nebraska (use Google Maps to find it!). The Mopac Trailhead has parking and restrooms available. I encourage all locals to ride to the Trailhead as to allow more parking for out of towners. If you have any questions about the start/finish area, please contact me.

The adventure begins on Saturday August 29, 2009 at 6 AM! Yes, 6 AM!

As a friendly reminder.....riders will be required to purchase Nebraska Powerball Lottery tickets as proof of reaching a checkpoint. All Nebraska Powerball tickets will be collected and verified at the finish line. The tickets will then be pooled and any winnings split amongst the race participants.

All riders are own their own after leaving the start/finish area. This is a self-supported event. You are responsible for you. Please train accordingly and bring all the necessary gear and equipment. Fortunately, most checkpoints will be less than 30 to 40 miles apart. The checkpoints (small town convenience stores) will have ample refreshments for thirsty and hungry riders. Bring some cash along!

This is a FREE event (actually you will need to spend about 4 bucks on Nebraska Lottery tickets). There will be prizes and medals, but most importantly, there will be Gravel Glory.

Please shoot me an email if you are interested in coming to the Adventure. Please use The Good Life Gravel Adventure as the subject line and include your name, age, hometown and category (Open or Single Speed/Fixed). Email me at:
