Audubon County Members of the Audubon County Conservation Board approached the Audubon County Board of Supervisors with a request to hold an organized bike ride through parts of Audubon County, to be held in conjunction with this year’s T-Bone celebration. Board members made this request at the March 29 Board of Supervisors meeting. Gene Karstens, chairman of the ACCB, said either Nishna Valley Trails or the Conservation Foundation would sponsor the ride. The proposed route was to start at Albert the Bull Park in Audubon, head south on the T-Bone Trail to Highway 44, then east to N-36, or Pheasant Avenue, south to Littlefield Drive, through Exira, then back north on the T- Bone Trail to Audubon, for an approximate 30 mile ride. Karstens said that the process of forming a ride started with the board, as well as the Audubon County Sheriff, and they were merely in the early stages of planning. “The process starts with you fellas. We need your permission and we also hope that you can take a look at N-36 and see what if anything can be done to get it bike ready.” Supervisor Todd Nelsen was somewhat hesitant, “The road isn’t a bike trail, we’re not required to make it fit for bicycles,” he said.
