We had a fun filled ride tonight with a nice pack of DOGS at Zorinsky tonight. Steve (Grey Hound) Stang, Sabra (Bull Dog) Mackey and little Olivia (Pit Bull) Mackey all took their initiation tonight. Of course the Big Dog forgot his camera, so picture to come next time.
The Pack is growing, let the fun begin...

The trail was a little crowded too, several walkers and riders with not much knowledge on how to keep yourself safe on the trail, oh well, thats why we try and go elsewhere on whe weekends cause its MORE crowded then.
WITH ALL that being said this trail is the perfect trail for someone just starting out and maybe not into doing a long or quick ride. If you havent been there its basically 2 big loops, kind of like a figure 8. Each loop is somewhere around 3.75 miles or so, you can easily do any combination you like and any distance you like.
We'll be riding again on Thursday for the world famous TACO RIDE....

We'll take off from Democracy park and go south 13 miles, somewhere around Culvers in Bellevue and then come on back. Join us, if 26 is a little much for your first ride you can abbreviate it to a ST Mary's 10 mile ride...
See you on the trail...

You know we came across this link somewhere or the other and decided to give it a try. We had
a great time and met a handful of new friends.
The "Baggers" on the Bridge to Nowhere
We pulled into the 132nd St HyVee for the ride and found ourselves in a group of about 12 riders. Kick off time was to be 10am and when we left at 10:30 or so I knew this was my kind of group. The pace was perfect and the breaks were perfect and the beer breaks were perfect and the stop at SCHMEDLEYS Driving range for refreshments and relaxation was a highlight. By the time we had made 7 or 8 miles and our second Hy-Vee I think there were about 4 tire changes,
thankfully the rest of the ride was pretty uneventful as far as breakdowns or issues go. (with the exception of yours truly about becoming ROAD MEAT cruising down maple street) The ride went well, combining some street riding with some neighbor tours and the West Papio and Keystone Trail.
Dutch, the guys who put this on, is a good guy, keeping the spirit up during the ride and not getting too serious about it. You know, had we pulled up and found a bunch of guys all decked out in uniforms and on road bikes we probably would have turned around and made our own ride for the day.
The ride ended up being about 50 miles and in the end we had pretty much canvased Omaha west of 72nd St. You can see our actual route and more details on Go Dutch GO by accessing the link on the right.
There are always a few lessons learned.
1. Always come prepared to ride in the dark, you never know how long a ride might actually take.
2. Always carry a spare or two or three.
3. Take a sharper angle when crossing the seam in the street.
We'll be out Monday at 6pm at Zorinsky for our regular Monday night ride. We'll go 16 with the option of 8 for any first timers or the option of 4 for anyone bringing there kids. See you there.
