Our Club

Who We Are 

The Omaha Pedalers Bicycle Club is an organization with a wide range of members and a variety of cycling skills and interests. We are a social and recreational club, not a racing club. Our objective is to provide a high quality recreational ride program with a friendly, social atmosphere. Our rides are open to the general public.

Riding is our passion….
And this is why we exist. From easy trail rides to moderate and more strenuous road rides, we provide a variety of cycling opportunities for all levels of experience. Our rides range from as little as two hours to day-long excursions and cover easy to more hilly terrain and everything in between. All of our club rides have a ride leader—particularly important to the newer rider unfamiliar with the routes or apprehensive about mechanical breakdowns. 


Advocacy

We are active in promoting and supporting cycling in our community through collaboration with various groups such as Activate Omaha, Omaha Bikes, the Papio-Missouri Natural Resources District, the Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee to the Mayor, Southwest Iowa Nature Trail (Wabash Trace) and other organizations that support cycling and healthy living.
