What is NOS?

The Nebraska Off-Road Series is a series of six, one day mountain bike racing events that take place on single-track trails in Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa. Each event consists of short course and cross country races.

NOS’ Mission

NOS aims to provide safe, consistent, and enjoyable mountain bike racing opportunities for everyone. NOS strives to promote competition, and inclusivity while building a community around their races!


The Course:

L&C marathon and XCO lap 2022 - A bike ride in Pottawattamie County, IA (

Lewis and Clark Monument trails (known locally as L&C) crisscross along a bluff on the edge of Loess Hills. Hills being the dominant feature, this trail system will test lungs and legs. Either you’ll be going up or going down. And it’s all single track trail. The fall is the best time to ride this trail, so don’t miss out!

Loop is approximately 5 miles. Level: Moderate to difficult

The Venue:
The Council Bluffs Parks and Rec. Dept. has done a beautiful job renovating the monument! It extends to the edge of a bluff where you can see the river and the Omaha skyline in full view. There are modern bathrooms and running water during the spring and summer seasons. The park hours are 6 a.m. – 10 p.m. year round. The park is monitored by a local city employee who resides in the house at the entrance.

Because this is a public place, parking at the monument is prohibited except for race organizers. Racers can park on the road leading up to the monument or on the gravel road on the north side. Please do not park in any of the private drives.

Take I-29 to the north side of Council Bluffs. Take the north 25th St exit. Go south to lighted intersection. Take left on Nash Blvd and head east across HWY 92. Road changes to Big Lake Rd. Follow it under a low train bridge (take note: be sure you can drive under it if you have bikes on top of your car). Follow road around Big Lake and go under second train bridge. At the intersection turn left onto N. 8th St, which will turn into Mynster Springs Rd. Take the next left on Monument Road. Park entrance will be at the top. Parking is not allowed in the park, except for race organizers.
