Trail Ramblings: Hey Bikers, Let’s Get To Know Each Other.

Last Friday at Bike Club I was waiting for riders to come into Code Beer and pick up a raffle ticket, some information, and maybe a button. With great bike parking right in front, it’s easy to see who rides in. As I asked those coming in after locking up whether they were there for Bike Club, the answer I got most often was “what’s that?” Lincoln is a bike city, in our view, and […]

Trail Ramblings: Commuting, From Theory To Action.

You commuters out there, did you know that you are idols? It may come as a surprise, or not, but your grocery cashier, that medical field worker, barista, customer and motorist who passed by, idolizes you. It always takes me by surprise because I’m just living my life on my bike, but every one of us is an inspiration to someone who interacts with us that drove to work today. How many times have you […]
