The Goldenride Story

This two-day bicycle event was born out of a growing demand for outdoor recreation and the recent boom in bicycling. We were looking for a signature event to raise awareness for our mission and increase our profile. Goldenride is a fundraiser which adds value for stakeholders, members, the cycling industry, community partners and healthy lifestyle providers throughout the State of Nebraska. And, it's focused on trail development, bicycle tourism, advocacy and outreach. 

This ride is for new and experienced bike riders of all ages and is largely on a recreational limestone trail.  This unique feature makes it a perfect weekend bicycle event for those who have never experienced a multi-day ride or may not be comfortable riding on Nebraska’s highways. 


Verano, LLC produces the Goldenride Bikefest and also produces Tour de Nebraska. Over the last 30 years, there is a legacy of proven success, building community partnerships and lasting economic impact.
