A note from the Omaha Pedalers:

Thank you bicyclists, Activate Omaha and area bicycle stores for making the spring Winter Coat Drive for the South Dakota Indian Reservations a resounding success. As a result, we will have a full-hour segment on KFAB’s Tom Becka show this Monday, May 18, at 6:00. To get time on his show, Becka gave us a goal of collecting and delivering 100 coats by this past Friday. We delivered 189.

Marty Shukert, Omaha’s bicycling guru, Chairman of the Mayor’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, and advocate for numerous cycling issues will be joined by Mark Siepker, president of the Omaha Pedalers Bicycle Club, in the KFAB studios to represent the cycling community.

We encourage everyone to listen to the show and, if you wish to make a comment, call into KFAB during the 6:00 p.m. hour at telephone # 558-1110. When calling, please be courteous and succinct. If you can’t listen, you can download the podcast at

The KFAB website is difficult to navigate. Here's a direct link to the recording of the interview on Monday, May 18, 2009, 6pm.

It was nice to hear Marty and Mark on the radio. He speaks so calmly and reasonably, despite Becka's attempts to move the conversation away from the relevant points.
