    Possible bike ride Saturday morning (Oct 4th)...Omaha

    Oct 4th - 7:30am or 8:00am

    I'm thinking about doing a ride around 40-50 miles - depending on how well I feel and ride. I'm thinking about starting at 156th and Maple, heading out towards Elkhorn, on to Valley via old 275 and maybe past that on towards Fremont. Time - Start around 7:30 or 8:00 - hopefully finish around 10:30 or so...

    This is the route I'm thinking of using Google Maps...

    Post here if you are interested or send me a PM.

    I've got to go get some firewood this Saturday morning - unfortunately the rest of October is busy and it doesn't look like I'll get any big rides in before you know what...

    For those that are watching this...I did manage to get back by 9am and did a nice ride from 156 Maple out to Valley and a mile past that - I figured with the head wind I was going to buck getting home was time to turn around. Around 185th and Maple (Across from Harley Davidson Store) I had my first flat. Fixed it and got to 156th and Maple, headed home from there and ended up getting a flat again...pumped it up to just get home since I was so close...about made it. Found out that the fix wasn't quite good enough..

    Schu, it looks like the weather will probably not cooperate much until spring. Let me know when you will be riding longer routes. I have several routes that I ride from my house at 185th just North of Dodge. My routes take me to Fremont, Leshara, Valley, Waterloo, Venice, 2 Rivers park, and Elk City. Next Spring I am going to ride routes to Arlington, and Nickerson.
