The Bike Racks of Omaha

Humor me.

I'm creating and maintaining a map of all known bike racks in the Omaha metropolitan area. This may seem ridiculous to you folks who already live in a biking town. It would be akin to creating a map of all the automobile parking lots in a city.

When this map gets too difficult to maintain, it will mean that Omaha has come into its own as a bike friendly city.

I could use your help. If you come across a bike rack out in public or at a business, send me an email with the location, description and a picture, if you can snap one. Optionally, send a Twitter message to @OmahaCyclist, the Twitter feed for Omaha bicycling news.

If you're a bigger geek than I am, and want to help by adding your own map points, let me know and I can add you as a collaborator to the map.

This map has a friendly TinyURL name for easy memorization: http://tinyurl.com/omahabikeracks

Thanks Erik. I never knew where Lisa's was until this Friday when we went urban exploring. We rode Happy Hollow to Hamilton, then to 40th. I saw Lisa's when crossing Cuming to take Burt into downtown. Some of that will be part of the Bike Omaha 20 mile loop soon, and I wanted to try it out.

I thought you'd tease me on this post about bike racks in Omaha. :) Let me know if you think of any more.

Do you recall if there is one at the Crane Coffee near the Keystone at Cass?

Immanuel Medical Center at 6901 North 72nd Street has one, just past the emergency room by the loading docks.
