    Omaha, NE - Commuting - Going East bound on L street over I-680?

    I have a function that occurs around 125th & L street, but need to ride back up towards 120th & Blondo - looking on Google maps with the "bicycle" feature, it maps that part green, but wondering if anyone knows what it would be like - time would be anywhere from 7:30 to 8:10 in the morning.

    Thanks

    I think I would try to work my way up toward Pacific and cross 680 there. L seems like a bad idea to me. If you've already done this, how did it come out?

    to old age and infirmity. You first.

    Well - the summer was very busy, so I rarely made the event. Going there I'd ride down L street between 144th and 132nd and be fine. Other times I'd have to ride from my work to the same location - ended up riding down the trail near 114th and Dodge and head south, get off at Pacific and ride down 105th, head over to 108th at some point and then head towards 120th on I street - then down 120th - of course this would be during 4:30ish time. I think I'd still avoid L street, as too much traffic, but I'd consider going down I street and up 108th towards work.
