Attention Speed Merchants

If you're looking for that extra boost of speed next season be sure to check out Cycling News article on the cost of speed.

The good old aero bar is still the least expensive way to cheat the wind. Starting at just $65 ($100 model shown). Mounting a pair on to your standard road bike will save you over 5 seconds a mile.

Making the jump into a aero helmet ($150 model shown) will save another second or two.

Add it all together with a sweet bike and you can save well over 10 seconds a mile. On a traditional 40km time trail that equates to 5:30 minutes, or almost 25 minutes for an Ironman.

Bike & Ride with MAT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 11, 2008

Learn How to Bike & Ride Sept. 15

OMAHA – If you’re looking for an alternative way to get around Omaha, hop on your bike and head for the nearest bus stop.

Starting Monday, Sept. 29, the general public will be able to begin using the new bike racks mounted on Metro Area Transit (MAT) buses.

Local bike enthusiasts can practice using the new bus bike racks in a learning session set for Monday, Sept. 15. The event - sponsored by Activate Omaha in conjunction with MAT, the City of Omaha and Omaha by Design - will begin at 5 p.m. in the front parking lot of MAT headquarters, 2222 Cuming St. All those interested are invited to participate.

“MAT’s new Bike & Ride program is a great way to encourage bicycle use and help raise Omaha’s profile as a bike-friendly community, said Tammie Dodge, project manager with Activate Omaha. “We encourage cyclists to stop by MAT on Sept. 15 and try out the new bus bike racks.”

All buses in the MAT fleet will be equipped with bike racks by the end of the month, said Curt Simon, executive director of MAT. Each rack holds two bikes, and the racks will be mounted to the front of the bus.

The bike rack program has been funded with federal grant money for transit projects related to the construction of the Missouri RiverPedestrianBridge between Omaha and Council Bluffs. The racks are not intended for motor-powered bikes (gas or electric), mopeds, tandem and recumbent bikes, tricycles, bikes with training wheels and bikes with trailers or other attachments.

For more information on the dos and don’ts of using the new bus bike racks, visit and click on the “bike & ride” link.

Bikes and a pair of 3 inch heels.

Last night I wore a little black dress with a gorgeous pair of patent leather, three-inch heel, Nine West beauties. Today, me and my tennis shoes are soaked in mud from a good, long ride on the Keystone trail before stopping at the Starbucks at 72nd & Dodge to journal and enjoy a frosty frappachino. The funny thing is, I used to put my bike in the trunk of my car and drive out to the Keystone for a ride. Now, I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that fact.

I love contrast and opposites--yin & yang--being girly and flirty one night and tough and muddy the next. Cycling has opened me up in a way I hadn’t expected and sorely needed. For that, I am incredibly grateful and achingly sad that this “challenge” has come to an end. That’s not to say I won’t continue to ride, but there’s nothing more motivating than feeling as if the “world” is watching. I can see why those television reality shows work.

This experience has taught me a lot: that I am capable of surviving Dodge Street on a bicycle; that I can shower and be ready for work in about 15 minutes; that I can enjoy riding through puddles and the feeling of mud spraying up my legs; that I have a lot of fantastic and supportive people in my life; that men really squirm at references to menstruation.

What’s been interesting is the unexpected changes that have come about effortlessly. I’m recycling more, walking if I don’t have my bike (i.e. instead of having a friend drive around the block to drop me off at home, I walk) and I’m craving healthier foods. My body has changed significantly in the last month, as evidenced by the fact that I am now wearing clothes I haven’t been able to wear in four years. Shopping just got a lot more fun.

I’m also ready for a serious cycling revolution to occur. It’s time for this country to surrender its reliance on automobiles and suburban strip malls. Omaha desperately needs a better trail infrastructure for commuters and a much more cycling-friendly driving community. When I took on this challenge, I had no idea I’d been joining the ranks of these underappreciated rebels who are more than entitled to their fair share of the road. Now, I’m proud to be even just slightly on the periphery of this courageous bunch of crazy endorphin addicts.

Kristin is skipping Yoga?

I have been cheating on yoga with my bike.

That’s right. I am having an affair with my beautiful, sparkly-blue, shiny, slightly dirty bike. I can’t help it. I keep thinking about yoga…I really do. I find myself yearning for Bikram. It is my centering agent. It is my practice and my prayer.

I have made several internal “commitments” to go to yoga, but then life happens and there’s my bike staring at me from the garage…watching, ready, fun.

So, I hop on and yoga gets left in the dust.

As freeing as cycling is, there are a lot of little irritations to work around. Many of Omaha’s sidewalks are not well kept. They are disheveled, neglected and unfinished on Dodge and Farnam Streets, in particular. People block the sidewalk, they don’t trim trees and bushes, and pull into the crosswalk so I can‘t safely cross the street. I can see the day coming when, while not paying attention, I die in some freak accident because the sidewalk suddenly ends in a steep cliff. Admittedly, I like the danger of Dodge Street and pushing it…riding up the hills, hard. I revel in the shades of green along the trails and the striking smell of fresh lilacs. But, today I almost ran over road kill and there’s nothing like that stench first thing to wake you straight up out of a morning fog.

And then there’s the sweat. I don’t glisten; I sweat like a middle-aged man at the gym desperately trying to reclaim his lost youth. And, that’s fine first thing in the morning or late in the day, but it doesn’t leave the best impression to ride to a meeting, show up a half an hour late because of bad planning and proceed to spend the first fifteen minutes of that meeting wiping dripping sweat from my face. And I won’t even talk about what’s going on under my clothes during the meeting.

Annoyances aside, the truth is I’m addicted. I get high off of the endorphins. I rode to work today and I don’t think I came down all day--one colleague asked me what I‘d snorted on the way in. “I rode my bike,” I said in a glazy daze.

Kristin is going for a bit of food.

Take-Out Anyone?

Only I would find a way to work food into this challenge.

The other night the cupboards were bare and we were craving takeout. There are numerous good restaurants nearby, but after serious contemplation it became apparent that most of them are Italian, burger joints or too fancy for takeout.

And Chinese? That just sounds like bad heartburn.

So, against the better judgment of my spouse, I became determined to make the trek at 8:00 on a Friday night to Vietnamese Asian on 72nd & Jones, a restaurant aptly named for the kind of food it serves (many people who haven’t heard of this joint think I’m suggesting a type of food instead of an actual restaurant).

Lately, I have been obsessed with bike racks. I am constantly assessing where I travel and how I might find a creative way to lock up my bike should I find myself without one.

It’s not a pretty picture in my head: there’s me fighting with a tree or a lamppost, I’m bent over with my big butt in the air, small children are staring and old ladies are pointing and laughing as I struggle to get my lock untangled and tied to some unfortunate smelling trash can. All of this just to ensure no one rides off into the sunset with my pretty blue bike – a fear I harbor even when my bike is chained to a pole that’s been cemented into the ground.

Okay, I’ve become a little attached to my bike. It’s as if this equipment were an extension of my body, eh hem. Now I know why so many men ride.

But, I digress. I was relieved on my way to Vietnamese Asian to recall that it is right next to the Trek Bicycle Store and I would undoubtedly have access to a very nice bike rack. The ride was a blast. I love cutting through empty parking lots, riding through neighborhoods and avoiding traffic. I have to admit that I’ve started seeking out the bumps in the sidewalk so I can do my own version of a standing jump (not impressive to the onlooker, but in my head I’m a super star).
I arrived at my destination exhilarated and ready to pick up take-out for my family. “Wait…what? No bike rack at the Trek Store? You have to be kidding!” I asked the gang waiting outside—who by now are very amused at my bemoaning the lack of a bike rack AT THE BIKE STORE—to watch my baby while I carefully packed the food in my messenger bag. I am becoming a master packer (no pun intended).

The ride home through Elmwood Park in the gloaming was beautiful and I, leaving the faint scent of fish sauce, lemon grass and curry in my wake, realized I had finally found my bike legs. Or, maybe the endorphins had just kicked in. Either way it felt great.

Unfortunately, just as I hit Dodge Street I could feel that something very, very bad had happened in my bag. It felt squishy and liquid and dangerously like a bad accident I’d had in the seventh grade during science class, which ultimately turned into me waiting in the nurse’s office for my mother to bring me new pants. “Oh, no! I can’t even look. As long as it’s not actually dripping down my leg I can get home.” Sound familiar, ladies?

Thankfully, it was only the curry that had spilled in the bag. Aside from some lost sauce and picking broken plastic lid pieces out of our dinner, it was a lovely meal.

PS – Sunday, I rode to Borders for some book browsing and coffee. What a great way to start the day. And…they have a bike rack!

Kristin Becomes a Commuter

Here is the first post from our Go By Bike winner:

There goes my manicure

One of the first things my spouse said to me when I explained that I would be commuting by bike to work, yoga and for the occasional errand was "you're screwed." It's true. I'm screwed.

My neighbor chided me with “you and you’re manicured nails are going to commute to work?” Well, yes, we are. I have quite a girly streak, but lucky for me there are accessories in bike riding. Lots and lots of accessories…some of them are even pink.

I just got my bike from High Gear in La Vista, NE (a town also referred to jokingly by it's residents as "The View"). I don’t know what the hell I’m doing. I can hardly figure out the lock, let alone the bike rack on my car and the millions of other things one needs to know in order to be a cyclist—or something of the sort.

It’s hard to think of myself as a cyclist. I’m a 36-year-old mother of two, an artist, a social worker, grant maker, a bit of a radical at heart and I love music. Cyclist has not been on the list for nearly eight years.

As exciting as it is to “win” something, this feels awkward and potentially burdensome. My body hasn’t been the same since giving birth to an 11-pound baby boy three years ago and now I’m going to make my way through mid-town Omaha to get from 50th & Cuming to 36th & Farnam. This is truly nuts. I’ll be lucky if I don’t get killed.

My knight in shining armor has been Miah Sommer, HighGear’s store manager. He’s a sweet and funny proud new papa (I got to see video of his baby) and has made this a more than enjoyable experience. In fact, all of the guys at HighGear (every single one of them cute—I think “good looking” is a requirement to work there) have brought a pleasant beginning to this upcoming adventure of mine.

Gladly, I made my first ride to Bikram yoga class on Saturday morning. It took awhile to get organized with a yoga mat in my messenger bag, but I made it. After spending 1.5 hours in a 105-degree room doing rather intense yoga, the way home was a bit more of a challenge. I made it, despite my fatigue and despite being chased by a couple of vicious stray dogs.

PS – I’ve been listening to Vampire Weekend when I ride. It’s the perfect music to make a middle aged woman feel like she’s in college again!

I’ve decided that I’m using my biking experience to take a step away from some parts of this city and move into others. I’m excited about that part of the adventure. About exploring something new every day. I already know that I’m going to have to make peace with hills, flat tires and the wind.

Congratulations to our Go By Bike winner, Kristin Williams! Her mastery of the English language has earned her a new bike and other fun stuff. Watch for her blog posts as she takes to the streets. If you see her please shout encouraging things and motivational slogans. She is the coolest person you will meet so please share the road with her.

The New Highgear

Posted by Picasa
Highgear Bicycle Store of Omaha opened its doors in April of 2002. Since that time it has seen little change other than we no longer carry camping equipment. To most if was their favorite bike shop, a place to hang out and talk about life, bikes, and everything in between.

We still do everything above, but it has gotten a whole lot better. Come and see the NEW and Improved Highgear Bicycle Store. We have redesigned the inside to make it easier to find the things that you want. The store is brighter, seemingly bigger, and just an all around better place to be. We've been here serving Omaha as one of the best bicycle stores in the Midwest for 6 years, and we plan on doing the same and better for a long time to come.

We will see you in the store or on the trail.

Go By Bike Challenge

The Go By Bike Challenge starts now in Omaha, Kansas City, and St. Louis. Highear Bicycle store and the Trek Bicycle stores in Omaha, Kansas City, and St. Louis have partnered with Trek Bicycle Corporation to offer 2 people from each city a unique opportunity to integrate bicycles into their daily life.

Area residents are invited to visit the Go By Bike Challenge website to submit their profile. A man and a woman from each city will be selected to receive a free bicycle and accessories from the event sponsors. Their prizes are theirs to keep if they complete the Challenge.

For the Challenge, each of the six winners will ride bikes on 6 short trips (under 2 miles) per week during the month of May, which is National Bike Month. Winners will post weekly online entries about the Challenge to share their experience with others in the community.

The goal of the Challenge is to promote a lifestyle which integrates the bicycle into daily life. Cycling promotes healthy people and a healthy environment; it is safe and fun for everyone.

Over 50% of the car trips taken in the US today are less than 2 miles. With the world facing concerns of global climate change and skyrocketing obesity rates, it is clear that our exclusive reliance on cars for transport isn’t sustainable. Using a bicycle for short trips is ideal. Bicycles are a practical solution, emitting zero pollutants and providing a low impact workout for the rider.

Deadline for entries is midnight March 24, 2008. Submit your profile today, and spread the word.

Working together we can make our communities greener and leaner.

Let Levi Ride the Tour de France

On February 13th, the Amaury Sports Organization (ASO) barred Team Astana from competing in any race or event organized by the ASO in 2008. The ASO owns premiere cycling events like Paris-Nice, Paris-Roubaix, Paris-Tours, and the famed Tour de France.

The ASO cited the doping scandals of last year’s Tour de France as justification.

There can be no comparison between the Astana team of 2007 and the new Astana. The entire organizational structure has been rebuilt under the direction of the team’s new General Manager, Johan Bruyneel, who has thoroughly cleaned house. What’s more, Astana has adopted the rigorous doping controls developed by anti-doping expert Dr. Rasmus Damsgaard, and Astana now spends more money on anti-doping controls than any other team in the pro peloton.

“That the happenings of last year…prompted the Tour organizers to leave Astana out of the season’s most important race sounds understandable,” notes Bruyneel. “However, Astana Cycling Team 2008 has nothing to do with the team of last year. We have done everything to change the dynamics of the team. New management, new riders, new philosophy. Only the name of the sponsor remained.”

The ASO has turned a blind eye to Johan’s efforts. By barring the entire team from competing in ASO events, outstanding athletes like Levi Leipheimer, who was not a member of last year’s Astana team and who has never been implicated in any doping affair, are forced to sit on the sidelines while their life’s work passes them by.

“When I saw the Tour de France on TV when I was young,” laments Leipheimer, “I knew that someday I wanted to do that race. I sacrificed my life to participate. After finishing on the podium last year I want to do even better. Now I’m a victim of an illogical decision and have been excluded from the race.”
