May 30-31 (weekend after Memorial Day) is the Bike MS 150 from Omaha to Lincoln and back. There are many opportunities for a one day and a two day bike ride with an overnight stay and party in Lincoln. The ride is fully supported by the MS Society and it’s a fundraising event for multiple sclerosis. It’s a great cause and we’d love to see you join our event. We support anyone riding 25 to 150 miles… Cost is $50 + a fundraising requirement.

TREK OMAHA / HIGHGEAR GROUP ROAD RIDES

Tuesday night road rides will be starting out of Highgear Omaha this Tuesday at 6:00. This week there will be only one group going so we’ll ride at a pace the group sets for 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 hours.

In a few weeks we’ll have two groups going; Kevin will lead a fast group 18-19+ mph average and roughly 45 miles and Alice will be leading a second group with a 15-17 mph average and roughly 35 miles(to be determined). We may adjust start times back to 5:45 next week, I’ll post and e-mail. As daylight permits we’ll start at 6:00 again.

Trek Omaha has a fast group going on Wednesday nights led by Greg with a 18-19+ mph(depending on the group) average starting at 5:45 for the next couple weeks moving to 6:00 when the daylight permits. They will also have a second group with a 14-15 mph average starting out of there in a couple weeks or when Frank decides it’s warm enough to ride.
