I missed a great picture

As I was riding in this morning, I missed a great photo opportunity. As I passed under 72nd street on the Keystone, I noticed two small kittens curled up with each other under the bridge. They were staying warm and out of the wind and rain. It was really cute, but they scampered away before I could get a picture.

I'm looking forward to a dry bike ride home for a change. How have the rest of you bike commuters been fairing in the wet weather?

Bike Omaha... a new blog

I've been working on a project for a few weeks to create a blog dedicated to bike related topics in Omaha and the surrounding areas. It's more of a news/get involved type blog. Have a look if your interested.

If you are interested in joining the team as an author, just let me know. We are looking for people to post about news, social events, and advocacy opportunities related to biking and using bikes for transportation in the Omaha and surrounding areas. We don't plan to cover MTB or Road racing as those areas are covered by other blogs, and the Bike Omaha blog has a widget to link to those news items automatically.

This blog will continue to be where we can all post information and stories about commuting in Omaha. If you don't have access to post, drop me an email at underdahill that at thing gmail dot com with your article and/or pictures and I'll get them posted up here for you.

sizzler rondevu

On Wednesday, Hannah and I rode from Benson down Maple to the Sizzler at 88th. From west Benson, we rode on the mostly 3 lane road to 72nd. Then hit the sidewalk b/c of the traffic and hills. Lots of non cutout curbs and on the way back, one telephone pole in the sidewalk beside a building that almost puts one on the street to get around. Not biking friendly but doable. About 15 minutes down and 20 back up.
