Sunday's Corporate Cycling Challenge to draw more than 4,300

Riders take off from the start line near 8th and Farnam Streets for the 21st Annual Corporate Cycling Challenge in August 2011.

The 23rd annual Corporate Cycling Challenge is Sunday in downtown Omaha.

More than 4,300 people are expected to participate.

Riders can choose between 10-, 25- and 42-mile routes, which start at 9 a.m., 8:30 a.m. and 8 a.m., respectively. The 10-mile course is the flattest of the three, and the 42-mile ride features rolling hills and river valley scenery. All routes begin and end at Heartland of America Park, near 8th and Farnam Streets.

The event benefits the Eastern Nebraska Trails Networks, a nonprofit organization that develops trails in the Omaha metro and eastern Nebraska. The cycling challenge has donated more than $125,000 to ENTN to date.

Register online for $33 or in person 30 minutes before each ride starts.
