25th, final NUMB ride postponed until 2021


What was to be the 25th and final Nebraska United Methodist Bike Ride for Hunger – also known as NUMB – is being postponed.

“Hunger is still our mission and we look forward to continuing that work with NUMB 25 in June of 2021,” ride organizers, including the Rev. Bill Ritter, director and co-founder as well as retired Blue River District superintendent, wrote to participants.

NUMB will offer full refunds to participants, as well as giving them the option of putting the money toward the 2021 ride or donating it to hunger projects already supported by the ride.

Planned for June 27 through July 1, NUMB had planned for a route from Elkhorn Hills to Ashland, David City and Fremont, recreating the first, nearly 400-mile trek.

Past NUMB rides have had as many as 150 bicyclists, last year surpassing the $1 million mark for fundraising for hunger organizations.

Riders are asked to post pictures of themselves on wheels for the NUMB Facebook page.
