Volunteer Opportunities - Plug In!!

Spring has sprung, and so has the events calendar!!  Help us get more kids on bikes, get more people bike commuting, get more people aware of cyclists on the road ... and have a good time hanging with like minded people in the process!  Contact Julie at jharris@activateomaha if you can help with any of these events.

EDITED TO ADD:  Our friends at the Community Bike Project of Omaha also have ways to get involved!  Check out that info HERE!
