Thursday August 24 // 5:00-7:00p // FREE SHOW with Ben Shaw: We host live music like, once in a blue moon — so come and down check out Ben Shaw playing a free acoustic set!
Every Saturday morning // 9a: We start the weekend right with a little casual ramble to the park. Meet us at the shop around 9am and aim to roll by 9:15. It’s a really fun & slow social ride to Elmwood Park (and beyond if you so desire) and then back to Benson. Sarah leads the ride and has to get back to the shop by about 10:30 but some folks keep on riding the Keystone, some come back when she does. It’s mostly a motivator to get yer buns out of bed and onto a bike saddle. Join in the fun! #coffeeoutside
Every Tuesday Night // Ladies’ Ride // 6p: It’s that time of year again, gals! We’re stoked to add another weekly ride, this one’s for the ladies. Meet here at the shop and we’ll roll out at 6 o’clock for an approachable ride that’s attainable for all sorts of riders (less than 10 miles usually). We typically end up at the Benson Brewery afterward for a drink and/or snack. Have questions? Don’t hesitate to ask!
Every Thursday Night // Road Ride 6p: Jim, our A++ mechanic leads the weekly Thursday Night Ride. We roll out of OBC at 6 pm sharp! This is a no-drop ride, about 20-25 miles, typically easy with a couple of climbs but no more than 1,000 feet. Make sure to grab your lights, water and dress accordingly as we transition into the summer months. Be ready for a beer and a bite at the Benson Brewery afterward.
Every Full Moon! We ride bikes in the moonlight once a month. Meet at the OBC back deck at 7pm and we’ll roll bar to bar. This is a fun, casual bar crawl with short rides between stops. Spread the word and join in the fun!
\\ NEXT FULL MOON RIDE : AUGUST 8, 7PM //
Pedal Happy Potluck: The last Thursday of every month we meet here at 7pm. Bring a dish and/or drink to share! Everyone is encouraged to share what they know about what is happening around the city as it pertains to bicycle advocacy. We scheme on ideas to help make Omaha more bike friendly and plan events to enjoy ourselves along the way. There’s also generally a Mode Shift Omaha update. #pedalhappy
