2020 EVENTS in the Western Panhandle
Hemingford will be the host Village for the start of the 40th annual Bike RideAcross Nebraska (BRAN40). The ride will start from Hemingford on the morning of June 7, 2020 and riders will make their way across Nebraska ending their trip in Wahoo on the 13th of June. There is expected to be somewhere between 600 and 1000 riders and their support personnel in Hemingford, with some of them arriving on Friday the 5 and a majority arriving on Saturday the 6th.
Hemingford Public Schools and the Box Butte Ag Society have very graciously offered the use of land and buildings for the event. Most of the riders will be tent camping on the school grounds while others may have campers at the fairgrounds, and yet others will be looking to participate in a “Bed a Biker” program.
The BRAN40 Committee will be looking for those that would be willing to share their home with a biker or two for an over night stay or to volunteer their time and talents to the event.
To learn more about the event please check out the Facebook Page BRAN40:Hemingford or the Village of Hemingford website ci.hemingford.ne.us or contact the village office at 487-3465.
We are looking forward to hosting this event in Hemingford and showing offjust what a small town with a big heart has to offer.
