Lincoln MILFord DorCHESTer Update

Arrrrg!!! Ahoy mates!!! With the impending doom and rough seas for the weekend the crew has decided to postpone the ride. We are bummed to have to but with the chances of snow and freezing temps along with high winds it would be futil. Not fun. Fun is what this is all about. Oh and people to. We want as many as possible to join us for our rides. The route has a bunch of cool dirt roads we want to ride. Not walk. Could we do a re route? Nope. It's not worth it. Talk around the wheel house is a date of May 4th. Hope the weather will do us a solid and we can all calm seas and warm sunshine!!!

Lincoln-MILFord-DorCHESTer-(denton)-Lincoln - UPDATED!

The Annual Lincoln-Somewhere-Lincoln Ride will be on Saturday April 13th at 9 AM!
This will take place of the TOUR OF DIRT ROADS!!!!!!

The Details

First, we'll meet at PCL shipyard 2659 S11th Lincoln, NE.  Then we ride to Milford for a quick stop. If ya want to head back to Lincoln from here that's totally cool with us. Otherwise we will all head to Dorchester for some lunch at the local wtatering hole.  Its good eats.  Trust us (ummmm, I wouldn't recommend trusting Pirates).  And the views along the route to Dorchester are worth the trip. Curvy roads along the river, wood planked bridges and century old farms. RAD!! The total miles for the whole ride is around 74. Once we make it to Dorchester we are better than half done with the route. We will clip the outskirts of Denton on our return, if ya need something real bad feel free to stop. They have a great C store right in town. (Mill's Squeegee)I think. If ya do stop here remember to return to the route where ya left!

White Elephant

The Pirates have traditionally held a white elephant gift exchange at the end of the ride. If ya want something better bring something to exchange.

The Route

Here's a link to the map The Route. FEEL FREE TO MAKE CHANGES TO YOUR FILE IF YA NEED TO!! BEST IS TO PRINT OFF THE CUES!!!! We might have a cue sheet for you and we might not. I would bet we won't so print the map. Or print the cues below:
