We talked with the Ride Chairman, Pat Mueller on the upcoming 5th anniversary ride for the Omaha Connect Ride.
This ride is sponsored by the Heartland CBMC (Christian Businessmen’s Connection). One of the features it offers is a pre-ride speaker to encourage riders to overcome obstacles.
This year, Josh Dotzler, CEO of Abide and former Creighton Basketball player will be the speaker.
In year past they have had:
- Steve Nabity, Ironman athlete that overcame a serious waterskiing accident and went on to with the Ironman in his age group.
- Jamie Whitmore, former Xterra Triathlete, who overcame cancer and a very serious nerve condition that has resulted in her left leg being paralyzed. She is now a USA Paralympian road racer.
- Lincoln Murdoch, a Triathlon athlete.
- Rick Sanders, a local long distance cyclist that has crossed the United States several times, once setting a record for doing so on a tandem bike.
Pre ride food, SAG support before, during and after ride Pancake meal in addition to a long Sleeve Dry T-shirt are included int he registration fee.
