Rides & Events
We Hope to See You Soon
Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. Store-sponsored rides also require flat repair materials. (Spare tube, CO2 or mini-pump, tire levers, etc.) We also suggest energy food, cell phone, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
The Bike Rack Events Calender
Omaha Group Rides
Wednesday Slide Rides
6:30pm at Stinson Park (Aksarben Village) by the bathrooms next to the stage
Each Wednesday (weather permitting) meet by the bathrooms in Stinson Park. We ride at 6:30 pm. We don’t go far and we don’t go fast. 10-15 miles at an easy pace. A no drop ride. All levels are welcome. No children please. You must have a helmet and hydration. This is a social ride. It is about exploring the world from a bicycle. Those who wish will gather on the patio of Liv Lounge after the ride for adult beverages and camaraderie.
Tuesday Trail Treks
9am - We will start at the West Papio Trailhead (at Harry Andersen and Q Streets). We will change it up this year and alter our start locations on a monthly basis so check our Facebook page for updates. Plan to ride 20 miles at the beginning of the season and increasing our distance as the season progresses. Remember your helmet, water, and snacks as we explore the Omaha trails!"
