Happy Bike Month!

For those of you that haven’t been following this blog series, we’re all about being positive. So, for bike month this year, we want to hear your stories about riding your bike, but we don’t want to hear just any stories. We want to hear about something good, something fun, and/or something that you’ve experienced riding that you wouldn’t have if you weren’t on your bike! For example, maybe someone smiled and waved as they yielded to you at a crossing, or maybe you just rode to get groceries and had a great time! It doesn’t have to be monumental, but to be eligible for prizes, it does have to be positive!

We’ll reward you for your positivity!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter! (and sign up for our email list at the bottom of this page)
  2. Share your story with #OMAbikestory from May 1st through May 10th (Don’t forget to make it a public post, we may not be able to see it!) –EXTENDED through Saturday 5/13
  3. We’ll select our favorites and put it up for vote on our Mayors’ Ride Facebook event page on May 14th
  4. The winner will win a Po Campo Loop Pannier and have the opportunity to share her/his story at the Mayors’ Ride on May 18th!


Enjoyed the beautiful sunrise today on my ride to work. #OMAbikestory

I got a smile and a thumbs up from a driver as I pedaled up a huge hill. #OMAbikestory

I really wanted to win that bag, so I rode to get ice cream for my #OMAbikestory

    I rode X-USA (San Diego – Charleston) in April/May 2016 for Special Olympics Nebraska, and this Sep, 1-24, 2017 have established “Circa de Nebraska”, a 3-week, 1,250 mile self-supported bicycle tour following the outline of the State of Nebraska. (
    A great way to celebrate Nebraska’s 150th year!

    I started getting in to biking as a means to cope with the loss of my grandmother. I decided to use the grief as energy to create positive things in my life. I thought if I was really sad then I could use that sadness to help me bike with more intensity. Through biking, I reached an extremely healthy place emotionally, physically, spiritually, etc. I loved biking so much that I got a road bike and started a bike event to raise money in memory of my grandmother. I have donated money to a literacy council in memory of my grandmother every year since she passed away. Biking helped me work through my grief, pedal by pedal.
