Last year cyclists from UNMC, The Nebraska Medical Center and UNMC Physicians along with their family members combined for 3,275 points to finish third. Union Pacific won with 4,617 points and Alegent was second with 4,421 points.
Participants can register up to the day of the event, but to order a T-shirt with the UNMC logo on it, riders must register by the end of Monday.
Those who register by Monday and who complete the challenge also qualify to receive a $50 gift card from Metro Health Services Federal Credit Union.
Participants may choose to ride:
- The Olde River Ride (10 miles);
- Riverside Ride (25 miles); or
- Tour De Fort (42 miles).
All tours begin and end at Omaha's Heartland of America Park at 8th and Farnam streets.
Points and prizes
The winner in each corporate division of the challenge is based on the number of total employee miles ridden. Like last year, miles logged by employee family members count half toward the organization's total.
A $100 gift card also is up for the grabs and riders increase their chances to win by riding more miles:
- Those who ride 10 miles earn one opportunity;
- Those who ride 25 miles earn two opportunities; and
- Those who ride 42 miles earn four opportunities.
Riders also can earn additional opportunities to win the $100 card if they ride farther than they did last year and/or recruit medical center riders who didn't participate last year.
