after all of the times i’ve praised and raved of my love towards omaha, i am truly saddened to share this news with you. not only am i saddened but i’m embarrassed - this just took our city back a major step, progressive-wise. i can only hope that the next time i post something “omaha-related” on here it will be out of my proudness for my city.

Hi there everyone !! ((or the whole 5 of you who read my blog)),
I want you ALL to check out peopleforbikes.org! They’re collecting one million names in support of a better world for biking — one that’s safer, more convenient, and more appealing for everyone.
Every day, millions of Americans like us ride for their health, for the environment, for their communities, and for the pure joy of bicycling. But until now, only a tiny fraction of riders have stood up to help improve bicycling in America.
Peopleforbikes.org is going to change all that. They’re building a national movement with the clout and influence to get things done. That means promoting bike-riding on an individual level, but also sending a unified message to our elected leaders, the media, and the public that bicycling should have their full support.
