Go By Bike

Have you always wanted to change your lifestyle for the better? Now you can. The Trek Bicycle Store and Highgear Bicycle Store of Omaha will be helping 2 lucky individuals to ride thier bikes for short trips and save the world. Did you know that the emission control systems on cars don't function effectively in the first few minutes of running? So all of those seemingly harmless short trips by car are highly polluting. We think that the people in our community are willing to join us in an effort to use bikes as a solution.

Sound intriguing? Click HERE to find out about all the details.

May is national bike month. Can you go car free or car light? We think so. Check out Chris Balish's "How to live well without owning a car" for tips and tricks. It's a great book for the avid rider or the new cyclist looking to advance their quality of life.
