Saturday Gravel ride/ Free Demo

Gravel Ride. Saturday 7:30 am. Meet at parking lot of Aspen Fitness (72nd & 370)

It looks like it is that time of year when we will be seeing a lot of gravel roads. To be honest we are a little pumped about it. If you find yourself pumped about riding gravel but do not have a cross bike, we happen to have a fleet of demo CX bikes that you may borrow if you like. Also, Mountain Bikes are welcome as well.

This will be a no drop ride and all ride levels are welcome. If you would like to use a bike please contact and we can get you set up. All borrowed bikes can be picked up the day before.

See you there.

So You Want To Be a Leader

Riding season is here and the Trek Bicycle Store of Omaha (Papillion) is looking for able people to help us out with our group rides.

This Summer, every Tuesday night, we will have THREE rides leaving the shop. There will be an A group which will cover a distance of 50 miles 20-22 avg mph. a B group that will ride 35-40 miles at 16-18 avg mph, and new this year, a C group which will ride from the shop through safe streets to the Keystone trail.

What we ask of our leaders is to make sure the group is enjoying the ride and making sure that nobody gets dropped from the group on our B and C rides. We need someone who can show leadership in emergency situations and someone who can represent our shop. In return we would throw you a great discount at the shop for your help.

If you are interested in leading the B or C groups contact me,, call the shop 402-935-1988, or stop in.

The B group will start this coming Tuesday, and the C group will start once we find the right person to lead it.

Ride the Divide Tomorrow Night



Ride The Divide, the award-winning feature-length documentary about the world’s toughest mountain bike race, will stop in Omaha on Tuesday, March 15 at the Aksarben Cinema. The event will be a fundraiser for

The film chronicles the story of several mountain bikers who attempt the 2,711-mile race named the Tour Divide along the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains. The movie was named the best adventure film at the 2010 Vail Film Festival.

This film has become an instant cycling classic, and made its television premiere in September on the Documentary Channel. But the Adventure Cycling Association said the film should be seen on the big screen: “The cinematography is stunning!” Added UpaDowna, “Ride The Divide is one of the most inspiring real cycling movies … in a long time.” Epic Riding summed the movie up as follows: “In a word? Fantastic. In more words? Moving, funny, inspiring.”

Ride The Divide embraces the inspiring stories of three of the racers who experience the immense mountain beauty and small-town culture as they attempt to pedal from Banff, Canada, to a small, dusty crossing on the Mexican border. There’s Mike, a 40-year-old family man who uses this challenge to chart a new course in life; Matthew, a leader in extreme endurance racing who’s competing for his fifth time; and Mary, the first female rider to race this route. As they set out, they will attempt to accomplish what very few have been able to. Over the course of a few weeks, they’ll attempt to climb over 200,000 vertical feet along the backbone of the Rocky Mountains.

They’ll experience mental breakdowns, treacherous snow, hellacious blisters, and total fatigue. Above all, they’ll race with no support – at times in total isolation. The tests of endurance and the accomplished moments throughout Ride the Divide prompt us to reflect on our inner desires to live life to the fullest.

Ride The Divide made its debut at the Vail Film Festival and was named the best adventure film at the event. Outside Magazine proclaimed that “(t)he toughest bike race in the world is not in France,” after reviewing the film.

Ride The Divide will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Aksarben Cinema located at 2110 S. 67th St., in Omaha. Tickets are $15 at the door, and $10 in advance at
