Public Open House Tomorrow!

The City of Lincoln will be hosting an open house Thursday (June 30) from 5:30-7:30 at Scott Middle School to discuss the design proposal for intersection of 14th Street, Warlick Blvd & Old Cheney Road.  The plans will affect routes used by drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.  If you use this intersection, this would be a great opportunity to become familiar with the proposed changes and to ask any questions that you might have! http://https://lincoln.ne.gov/city/mayor/media/2016/062716.htm

National Bike Challenge: End of June Update

Did you know the National Bike Challenge rewards people for riding frequently rather than riding longer distances? The first mile a rider logs each day is worth 21 points (20 points for each day + 1 point for each mile). Now it’s time to have a very important conversation about MADISON, WISCONSIN. The Badgers are just ahead of us as the #1 cycling city in the challenge, but we have some good news! We crunched […]

Trail Ramblings: When Things Get Sketchy The Sketchy Get Going

odin2

Well it wasn’t the ride I set out to do, but it was an interesting ride to end up having done. I don’t have problems navigating Lancaster or Cass counties. My rides in Otoe, Nemaha, Johnson, Sarpy, other counties, and even Iowa have been navigationally uneventful. Odin’s Revenge is a gravel race in the Gothenburg area consisting of a short course and a long course of about 180 miles. I did it last year year, […]

Trail Ramblings: To Loma And Beyond

lpsnrd oak creek trail

It had been a few years since I’d been on the Oak Creek trail, so when the opportunity came to ride it again, how could I resist? Especially after missing out this year on the Good Life Gravel Gran Fondo. I traded the beautiful Loess hills of Iowa for the also impressive Bohemian Alps of the Valparaiso-Loma-Brainard area. Monkey Wrench Cycles is sponsoring a weekly unorganized ride to Loma with two routes, one 14 mile […]

Trail Ramblings: A New Trail Will Soon Be In The Mix.

File_003(1)

I have been watching the new trail under 56th St. south of Old Cheney take shape this past month. It’s nearly finished, though I don’t know when the official opening will be. As to exactly where it eventually leads, that is a little more of a mystery. I believe it’s supposed to go under Pine Lake and on into the new development to the south. I’m glad to see they may also be thinking about […]

This week’s feature has been around now for a couple years, and always features some of the greatest gravel in the Midwest. This Saturday, June 18th, the Midwest Cycling Community is taking us to Malvern, IA […]

Trail Ramblings: Getting That Ride In.

holmes lake sunset

We’ve all had those days, or weekends, when the weather is beautiful, all your friends are out riding, and you have to work or have a family event, or other such activity that prevents you from getting out and riding. Such was my weekend. I don’t begrudge extra work hours because that’s what puts new tires on my bikes and pays for that new shifter. And I certainly don’t begrudge the family birthday and all […]
