Sarah thinks bikes will change your world, if you let them. She’s pushing the city to embrace bicycles as transportation in addition to recreation & sport. Sarah enjoys event planning, coffee drinking (black, like her heart), raising backyard chickens, and trying to get more folks (women in particular!) to incorporate bikes into their daily life here in Omaha. Due to some strange health stuff, she’s become a very knowledgeable e-bike commuter, relying on that technology solely, for about 2 years. She hopes the future will not necessitate the help of an e-bike/pedal assist, but is ever-so-grateful for the perspective and appreciation she’s gained during this trying time. She and fiance Scott, their dog Gertie, and 4 chickens, enjoy a 1 car household in Benson. She’s also a founding member of our local transportation equity non-profit, Mode Shift Omaha. Come in and ask her all about it! #pedalhappy #shiftomaha #bikegang #youdownwithobc
Jim P. aka “the wizard”
DH racer in a previous life, now exploring what Omaha has to offer after relocating here from New Jersey! You’ll see him atop the saddle of his Lynskey OBC Rambler leading our Thursday night group rides or on his Jamis Dragon Slayer Pro if he’s off road in the woods. He’s been in the industry turning wrenches for over 20 years and has a real passion for solving complicated bike problems. Try him, he’ll likely find the solution to your weird bike problems…and maybe even fabricate a part to aid in the process. Wizard. Fo real.
He’s a Denver transplant who started hanging out here and riding with us about a year or so ago. Now we’ve roped him into actually working with us! He’s kind of a super star because he floats between making coffee and working on bikes! He’s in the process of turning an old Bridgestone into a fun commuter but otherwise rides a Surly Straggler, Jamis Renegade, or a Salsa Fargo!
She’s been a barista for years and we’re happy to have her here making beautiful coffees with us these days! She’s also a musician and piano teacher and rides a Jamis Renegade (or Coda in the snow) to commute around town, year round because she’s rad.
She’s our newest team member and we couldn’t be happier.
Gertie aka Derp
Shop dog in training; can be found riding in Scott’s sidecar contraption or behind Sarah in a BOB trailer/Surly junk strap combo. Young and scruffy and rascally.
Forever our shop dog! Loved riding in her Burley Tail Wagon and chasing sticks (and food). RIP best buddy.
