BRAN has visited 93 counties and 24 different starting towns. Over the years, the ride has developed a fine reputation and a lot of support throughout Nebraska. The past and current organizers have had the wonderful opportunity to meet some great folks on the ride and across the state.
For the 39th consecutive year, BRAN is offering bicyclists the opportunity to take part in a week-long bike ride celebration of our state's scenic beauty.
The theme of this year's BRAN is a "Tale of Two Trails" which will provide the option to ride on the Cowboy Trail as well as on paved highway shoulders through the scenic sandhills of northern Nebraska. The ride will start in Chadron on Sunday, June 2 and overnight in Gordon, Cody, Ainsworth, Atkinson, Neligh, Clarkson and end in Fremont on Saturday, June 8. This year's BRAN will again have 3 and 4 day options to ride as well as the traditional 7 day tour.
