More than 30 riders participated in a ride to see the most awesome South Omaha Trail connection on Sunday, and we had a great time! This connecting segment is a huge step for trail connectivity in Omaha with the full connection scheduled to be completed this fall!

With the sun blazing and 95 degree temperatures, we are were all grateful for the shade. (even if it means our picture was a little dark)

It was hot enough that we opted for this shady spot for the picture.

After a conversational pace ride south on the Field Club, we continued on the new South Omaha Trail connection by the silos. We reached the end of the new construction, and everyone hiked to see the work underway near 40th &D. It’s amazing to see how much prep work goes into constructing the trail, and the planning process for this has happened over years!

After heading back north on the Trail, we climbed up Marcy Street to find our way to The Down Under Lounge.  With great drink specials, free hot dogs, and bingo, they were a most excellent host!

Our pre-warmed racks were nearly full!

After some cold beverages and conversations about the awesomeness of bikes, we we played some bingo and laughed together for a great social hangout.
