Re: BRAN 40 or 41?

Glad to hear you are doing well Missouri John. I am staying healthy here in Lincoln although I had another pulmonary embolism last month. I was afraid it was Covid 19 as I was having trouble breathing and actually glad it was another PE. Doctors still don’t know where the clots originate but tell me...

Re: BRAN ROUTE 40

John and Frank; looks like I won’t be joining you for this springs BRAN. My mom passed away in early January so we moved back to Lincoln from Phoenix and I am subbing until spring while everything is settled. We plan to be traveling back to Phoenix in late April. Hopefully I will be able to join you...

Re: Planning for 40

Just finished a 40 mile loop to Cave Creek from Scottsdale today. It is a little cool here in the upper 50’s but very little wind. Had to do an overhaul of my bike when I first got here last week. I think I still need to shorten the chain more as it seems too loose when I shift to the small ring. I ...

Re: BRAN ROUTE 40

Thanks John, I wish you luck on your ride to Hemingford. If you stay in Bruning again, don’t forget about the automatic sprinklers that come on at 3:00 AM. Also, my mother has moved to assisted living in Holdrege, but you can probably stay in the park just a couple blocks south of where we stayed. I...

Re: BRAN ROUTE 40

Heading for Arizona in two weeks so I can ride without getting frost bitten. Looking forward to the coming spring's ride through the sand hills. I would have loved to ride to the beginning like I once did when younger, but still am anxious to ride the rollers and crank my way to the top of Democrat ...

Re: Planning for 40

I can’t wait to see the jersey with this theme. I wonder if the route will be from south to north and back down like a few years ago when we started in Falls City. If we will be staying in first time towns, it would seem hard to find any of those in the western part of the state. Anyway, this route ...
