Julie, from Activate Omaha, just emailed information about a challenge to bring a Coat to the Mayor's Ride to donate for the benefit of "Native Americans at South Dakota reservations, some of the most impoverished people in America. Coats will also be donated locally to the Open Door Mission."
The great part of this is that the challenge might give cyclists in Omaha a voice on a local radio show. Come on Pedal Omaha! Let's step up and show them how generous the Omaha Pedaling Public can be. I'll be going through my closet tonight to find some of those "retired" coats that are just taking up space.
