Bike/Ped Rally Logistics

9 Aug

A few things to note regarding the Bike/Ped Rally scheduled for noon on Sunday, August 10 at Stinson Park. We will convene at the Tower at noon, rain or shine.

Following brief comments from Councilman Chris Jerram, Mode Shift Omaha chair, Craig Moody, and Omaha Bikes spokesperson, Ryan Feagan, there will be optional, at-your-own-risk bikes and walks. Whether you’re biking or walking, please obey the rules of the road. It is not a closed course. Be safe. Ride right. Signal your turns. Stop at all stop signs and lights. Have fun. Be respectful. And wear a helmet if you’re riding.

Routes are as follows:

Bike Route— A 4.12 mile route utilizing shared roadways and designated bike lanes in the Aksarben/Elmwood Park Neighborhood. North on 67th through Elmwood Park. Roundabout north on Happy Hollow to Howard. To 55th. South to the Leavenworth Bike Lane. West to 60th. South to Woolworth. West to 63rd. South to Center. West to 64th. North on 64th Ave back to Stinson.
Bike Route
Walk Route—A 1.46 mile route on city streets with varying infrastructure for pedestrians. East on Center to 60th. North to Shirley. West to 67th. Back to Stinson.
Walk Route
Walk Route Alternate—No hills, good for children walking or biking. East on Center to 63rd. North to Shirley. West to 67th. Back to Stinson.
Walk Route Alternate
And if you want to roll on your own, the Keystone Trail is easily accessed from Stinson Park.
We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday. Have fun. Sign the petition. Wear a sticker. Be boisterous yet respectful. And be an advocate.

    Helmets are actually optional. It’s an open road and helmet use can’t be enforced. Sorry!
