The Antelope Stampede gravel ride was a second year success on September 17, 2022 in Kimball, NE. This adventure was only 2.5 hrs from Denver with the largest course offering crossing from Nebraska into Colorado, then into Wyoming as riders returned to the finish back at Gotte Park in Kimball Nebraska. The course offered pristine fast gravel on rolling terrain through a section the Pawnee National Grasslands, wind fields, and sights of local wildlife such as antelope, deer, rattlesnake, pheasant and the every hunting hawks. Cool temperatures, slight winds and bright sun made for a spectacular ride. Once the riders finished, they were awarded with a free BBQ and joined by the local community as they celebrated & enjoyed bike raffles to local kids, bouncy houses, face painting, and even a pie eating contest!
