I have lived in Omaha most of my adult life. Up until about 5 years ago, the only parts of Omaha that I was familiar with included the places I could see from Fort, Maple, Blond, Dodge, Pacific, West Center, and the Interstate. If I couldn't get there quickly by car, it was not a place I would typically visit. About 5 years ago I started bike commuting. Since then I've seen a lot more of the interesting, but slightly less traveled, places in Omaha. Now that I've started seeing Omaha from a bike seat, it has been amazing to see how much of Omaha's interesting places I was missing.
The next time your out riding and see one of those "interesting" places in Omaha, snap a picture and send it to us at omahabikes AT gmail DOT com and we might post it here.
Here is a picture I took on my way to work today. Does anyone know where I took this picture.
