Nebraska mountain biking might sound like an oxymoron but it is a growing sport in a state that has no actual mountains. The bike trails at Platte River State Park are a popular destination for a dedicated group of bikers who ride and maintain the trails. And now, thanks to an influx of federal grant money, the trails will expand for new and experienced riders. The park is already on a top 25 list of State Park bike trails and the goal is to become a regional destination. Meet the riders who love these trails, including a national champion female mountain biking racer from Omaha who practices at the park.
