A community-centric bike race, ride and festival just outside of Lincoln bringing us all together for a summer camp weekend..but, with bikes.

June 23-24, 2023 – Roca, NE

Presented By:

Summer Camp Vibes

Adults deserve summer camp, too. We have on-site camping, finish line s’mores, jumping pillows, and activities for all ages.

Race, Ride or Party-Pace

We invite you to show up as you are, whether you’re a race, rider or party-pacer. There are three distances to choose from meant to be challenging, but not soul-crushing.

Cycling is For Everyone

Intersection inclusion is woven into the way our event operates with three gender categories, equity-based cash prizes, land usage tax, and an Advisory Board.

The Stoke

The finish line is a festival with plenty of beer, food trucks, and fun events for the whole family. Best of all, Grounded is giving bigger prize purses to women and non-binary racers, as well as donating a portion of each registration to the Lincoln Indian Center.” 

-The Radavist

“Both Core4 and Grounded Nebraska have inclusive and equitable initiatives and principles baked into their structure. From short, beginner-friendly distances to working with advocacy group partners, Dumas and Buhmeyer both mention the concept of breaking down barriers through their events.”

-Betsy Welch, VeloNews

“The overwhelming response is people are excited because they feel seen. We want people here, be welcomed, enjoy it, and feel safe coming to our event.”

2022 Courses at Grounded Nebraska

125-Mile Course

Don’t let the misconception that Nebraska is flat fool you, as the course will feature at least 5,000 feet over a steady stream of undulating hills.

60-Mile Course

The 60-mile course is an excellent primer to long-distance gravel, or if you just want to get back to the party at the festival sooner.

25-Mile Course

The 25-mile ride is to inspire the cyclist in all of us. The short distance, with minimal elevation, is perfect for dipping your toes in the gravel grinding world or for grabbing the family for a scenic spin.
