Bicycling as Commuting
Thursday, March 26, 2009
First United Methodist Church, 69th & Cass Streets, Omaha (enter north door education wing)
Do you want to cut your carbon footprint, and get more physically active at the same time? Help reduce traffic congestion, and help reduce our dependence on foreign oil? Have you considered making bicycling part of your routine? Perhaps even your main mode of transportation?
We'll be discussing bicycling as a means of commuting at our March 26 program. We've got a great group of speakers to let you know what is happening in Omaha to make cycling safer and more reliable as a means of getting around town. And these experienced cyclists can give tips on what you need to know if you want to ride smart and ride safe.
Our speakers are leaders with Activate Omaha and Bikeable Communities! and include:
- Marty Shukert, principal with RDG Planning and Design, and former Director, City of Omaha Planning Department;
- Stuart Shell, also with RDG, and board member of the Community Bike Shop;
- Kerri Peterson, executive Director of Our Healthy Communities Partnership;
- Kent McNeill, founder and owner of Highgear and Trek Bicycle Stores.
Come to our March program to find out what you can do to increase your cycling miles while staying safe.
