Celebrating the completion of the 38-mile Bike Omaha Network
It has never been easier and more safe to ride a bicycle throughout Omaha, thanks to the Bike Omaha Network.
This network combines shared streets, bike lanes and pathways to connect the metropolitan trail system to downtown Omaha and other important destinations across the city.
Along streets in neighborhoods throughout the City of Omaha, the Bike Omaha Network is marked by easy-to-use wayfinding signs. The robust network features more than 600 individual sign panels at over 400 locations around the city. The network enhances navigation and safety while promoting traveling by bicycle throughout Omaha.
Make sure to wear a helmet, and that your helmet fits firmly on your head.
- Follow the rules of the road, be predictable, be careful when sharing the road and always signal turns.
- Be visible when riding at night – wear bright clothes and reflectors. Make sure your bicycle has a white headlight and a red rear light or reflector.
- Your safety is of upmost importance on the road. For more information about bicycling safety, please visit the link below.
