NESHR Hosts First Ever Sand-Hills 1,000km!

Nebraska will be running its first 1,000 K in the Sandhills region. Despite growing up in the Midwest, I didn’t know about the Sandhills until I rode some of Larry Larson’s brevets. 


The ride starts in Broken Bow and heads west for about 130 kilometers. The route then turns north and heads through the heart of the Sandhills while going through the towns of Mullen and Valentine. It carries on west to Merriman where riders will spend their first night.

On day two the route continues west before entering the Pine Ridge/Nebraska National Forest area near Chadron.

From there the route heads out into the plains before stopping at Car-Henge on the way to Alliance.

The route then reenters the Sandhills a few miles east of Alliance and travels on the Sandhill Journey Scenic Byway (one of my favorite roads) to the overnight in Hyannis.

Day three starts off as heading south to the interesting town of Arthur before turning back east to Broken Bow. 

This ride has long distances between towns with no resources and little or no shelter and the possibility of winds, some which may be strong. This is a ride through vast stretches of rural America, with it’s own challenges, so no need for mountains! 

If this interests you, we would love to share some kilometers with you.
