Grounded Nebraska Race Rules

Be respectful. To all. When all else fails, just lean into kindness. This means being respectful of volunteers, riders, staff, and the land.

Wear a helmet. We like your noggin, and think you should keep it safe. Helmets are required, as all it takes is one little spill.

Never litter. You will be disqualified for throwing trash anywhere but the bin.

Safety is your responsibility. You are responsible for you, but help others when you can. Abide by the rules of the road. Be prepared for inclement weather, flat tires, mechanical problems, hydration and nutrition needs. Make sure you’re safe.

Practice consent. Ask for consent before touching people, their bikes (or any gear), giving advice or taking photos.

Abide by the rules of the road. All roads will be open to traffic. Stop at all stop signs, ride to the right of the enter line, even if a center line is not marked.

Have lights on your bikes. Rear lights are required by state law and will help keep you visible to all road users.

No outside support. No outside support, handoffs, or bags at checkpoints. We have fully stocked aid stations, and want to keep non-riders off the course as much as possible for safety.
