“Cinco de Mayo Taco Ride And Walk” On White River Trail


     An unusual free event combining exercise and Mexican food takes place late this afternoon on the west side of Crawford – the Cinco de Mayo Taco Ride and Walk.

  Participants will walk or bike a 6-mile round trip from the Crawford City Park to Fort Robinson and back.

    A joint effort between the Northwest Nebraska Trails Association and the Friends of the White River Trail, the Taco Ride and Walk starts at 5:00 but participants can begin any time over the following hour or so.

     Once a walker, runner, or bicyclist finishes, they can head down to the Tailgate Bar and Grill in downtown Crawford for a free dinner fiesta.

     Trails Association President Dr Britt Helmbrecht says the entire idea is to encourage families and individuals to come out, have fun, and eat well while getting a first-hand look at all the White River Trail has to offer.
