The ride begins and ends in Columbus, NE, making stops through the communities of Duncan, Silver Creek, Shelby and near Osceola. At each stop, full supported sags will be available with ample water and food for riders to keep up their energy. The ride will end at Izaak Walton in Columbus, NE where a post-event celebration with giveaways and complimentary food and drinks will be made available to all participants and their families.

The goal of Loup d' Loup is to raise awareness and funding for polio eradication.
