Omaha, NE – Omaha plans to add 20 miles of bicycle routes throughout the city over the next 12 months.

Mayor Mike Fahey announced Monday that Activate Omaha and Bikable Communities secured $600,000 for 20 miles of bicycle routes. The goal is to link downtown with bike trails and give bicyclists a safe place to ride.
