Bike Omaha has been Omaha's biking resource for trails, commuting and hiking since 2004. We support bicyclists and commuters in the Omaha Metro area.
Lewis And Clark
The first time I ever got out to L&C, I almost turned back.
The bluffs are steep as hell, the single track was overgrown and the first serious hill scared the sh!t out of me.
Then, with a serious gut check, I went down... and down... and down... all the way to the bottom of the bluffs where I was greeted with fast track, lolling little roller-coaster hills, bump-n-jump logs and some seriously fun wheel turning.
Simply awesome riding.
L&C is a standout park as-is, but dropping the bike/hike trail there was a stroke of genius. It's barely outside of downtown Omaha, and is accessible by vehicle and bicycle commute.
I'd highly suggest that you MTB L&C, although I've seen some brave souls out there with 32mm.

Fast Single Track? Swanson, foo!
Sick of concrete? Need to get back to nature, but you don't want to drive out to the 'Bash? Check out Swanson park in Bellevue. It's a very sweet little single track for your MTB or Hybrid (If you dare!) This is a course that'll get your heart beating faster that your legs can pedal. You'll go from forest, to plains to river bed in a mere 4 miles. There's some real leg stompers mixed in as well... If you haven't been out there yet this year, make sure you slip out for a quickee.

Don't know how to get there? Look at a map, Delmer.
From Omaha, take Hwy 75 south from I-80 to the Cornhusker Rd. exit. Go west on Cornhusker to approximately 34th St. Look for a brick sign on the north side with scrolling red letters for the Fire Department Training Center. Turn north and the parking lot is about 50 yards down the road on the left.
