    Omaha news

    Biking has been in the news (Omaha World Herald) several times lately. In no particular order... .

    The new pedestrian bridge over the Missouri River will open about a month early.

    Another article on the endless debate of pedestrians versus cyclists over the use of MUPS.
    http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_pag...u_sid=10391766

    Finally, my favorite: An article about 82-year-old Earl Norman who has just completed a 2800+ mile tour on his folding bike. He makes a trek every year it seems. Perhaps there is hope yet for the rest of us.

    For some reason the OWH loves stories about conflict on the trails. They weren't much interested in this though:

    There is a time to resign oneself
    to old age and infirmity. You first.

    News organizations all love stories about conflicts. It's the nature of the beast.

    I believe this survey was conducted again this summer. Presumably, we will see another such report next March.
