Handlebar Happy Hour – J.Coco’s

Category: Handlebar Happy Hour

This month’s HHH will be hosted by:
- J.Coco 
- 5203 Leavenworth St.
- Tuesday, May 22nd, 5:00 PM

OmahaBikes schedules Handlebar Happy Hours (HHH) typically on the 4th Tuesday of every month for cyclists to gather, share information, make new friends and socialize. We strive to select businesses that are friendly to bicyclists, and are located in different regions of the city. 

One of the goals of the HHHs is to relax and have some fun, but the HHHs are also intended to strengthen the cycling community. As we become better acquainted, we hope to tap into the collective energy and talents of the cycling community to help us continue to make Omaha a more bicycle friendly city.

OmahaBikes representatives will share information from 5:00 to 6:00 PM on our vision, mission and objectives. HHH participants are welcome to stay as long as they like and are responsible for their own purchases.
