We try to have a lot of fun at this ol’ bicycle shop. Some events happen regularly, some are one of a kind. Take a gander at the list below and get on down here!
Tuesday, February 21, 7-8:30pm: Join us for an evening of basic bicycle maintenance! Sarah will teach you how to keep your bike happy, including how to fix a flat, basic chain maintenance, cleaning & lubrication, and how to use a barrel adjuster. No need to bring your bike to class, just your questions and your person 🙂 Class caps at 12 participants. $10 (non-refundable) guarantees you a spot! Stop in to reserve your place or give us a call.
Interested in a deeper dive into bicycle mechanics and actually work on your own bike? We’re also hosting a 4 night class (every Wednesday in February from 7-9pm) for $200 that Jim will teach. If you want to really expand your knowledge, this one’s for you! Limited to 6 attendees and filling fast!
Every Saturday morning we start the weekend right with a little casual ramble to the park. We meet at the shop around 9 am and aim to roll by 9:10. 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 10:15a.m. 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 – WILL RESUME IN MARCH. WE’RE HIBERNATING. We’re stoked to add another weekly ride, this one’s for the gals. Meet here at the shop and we’ll roll at 6 pm sharp for an approach ride that’s attainable for all sorts of riders. Have questions? Don’t hesitate to ask!
Every Thursday Night// Road Ride- WILL RESUME IN MARCH. WE’RE HIBERNATING. 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. Generally a beer and 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. Fun, casual ride. Spread the word and join in the fun!
Pedal Happy Potluck: Generally it’s 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
