Bike for Sight Set for Saturday

The University of Nebraska Medical Center will hosts its third annual Bike for Sight charity tour on Saturday, April 26, 2014. It’s set for Miller’s Landing on the downtown Omaha riverfront.

This charity bike ride had 595 participants last year making it the largest single-day cycling charity event in the state of Nebraska.

For every registered rider (walker & joggers also welcome) Truhlsen Eye Institute’s Global Blindness Prevention Division will perform (1) FREE Cataract Surgery on a patient living needlessly somewhere in the world for the mere $20 registration costs.

With a non-competitive format, both casual and serious riders of all ages and skill levels can enjoy the Bike for Sight Ride.

Participants can choose their course distance with 5, 10, 20 and 40 mile options available.
Walkers and joggers are also welcome to participate in the 5 mile course.

Post-Ride event attendees are invited to enjoy live music and the Nebraska Brewing Company’s Beer Garden. Every registered rider over the age of 21 with a valid form of ID can enjoy a complimentary tasting of one of Nebraska Brewing Company’s microbrews. Those under will receive a Root Beer.

The event is slated to begin at 9:00 a.m. Participants can pre-register at bikeforsight.org or in person the day of the event; however, day of event registrants are not guaranteed their event T-Shirt to be available for pick-up until the following week.
