    Congratulations to everyone who participated in this challenge. Folks were out there on some pretty brutal days this winter. Even though tomorrow morning's temperature is going to be 40 degrees less than this morning's, overall it's starting to look like Spring is just about here. Great job, everyone. Next up: National Bike Challenge, starting May 1. See you there.

    Does your business, church or school have an immediate need for some bike parking? UNO has a handful of well maintained traditional bike racks that are free for the taking for anyone who can pick them up. Email me (madison@livewellomaha.org) if you want to be connect to the person coordinating the effort. They gotta go this week!

    Looking for ways to make sense of Jim's death. Can only offer my services to try and prevent future tragedies. If anyone is looking for volunteers for RoS or any other cyclist/pedestria safety & awareness activities, please count me in.

    Someone should organize a Ride of Silence for Mr. Johnston.

    I rode in to work today praying for everyone affected by James' death. How sad.

    Sad report hot off the press. A bicyclist was hit by a car a few hours ago about 260th & W. Center Road and he's in critical condition. He had no I.D. and they are still looking for help on that. He rode a blue and white Douglas Fusion bike. More details are on the KETV web site.

    Great morning ride today with kudos to a couple of motorists. One who slowed down to tell me "Good job" and the other who set a pick for me so I could change lanes.
