Participants pedal to place
Sanctioned event Saturday.
Twenty-nine participants in a sanctioned pedal pull Saturday afternoon earned the right to compete in the 2014 event in next year’s Nebraska State Fair.
Sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce Ag Committee, the event was in the Shopko Hometown parking lot.
