What's the weather going to be like this weekend?

Not good. I'm wanting to go ride storm mountain or at least some of it. I also want to plant a garden. We're starting a bunch of plants in the house and they're going to need a place to go in a couple weeks. My parents are coming out this weekend and are bringing a industrial sized tiller to tear up my sod. It's going to be great.

I also need to mow.

In order: bike, mow, till

I rode to work today in an effort to get ready for Bike to Work Month. That's May for those of you who don't know. I've been such a cheese on riding to work. My only excuse I have this time is that it rains... alot.

I'm wanting to get out this weekend and go for some sort of ride. Once again, rain is in the forecast for tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday. I'm not looking forward to it.

I'm going to start planning a bike camping trip. I plan on leaving from the North end of the Centennial Trail and moving my way South. I'll probably get to Dalton Lake the first night and then ride on to Pactola the second. I could get farther, I'm really not sure. The most difficult issue is my Blur does not have any room for a rack so everything I take will have to be on my back. I should be able to take plenty of food for a 2 day ride. I could always have my family meet me at Dalton lake to camp with me too. That could be even more enjoyable.

Link to the route.

I have no idea how to prepare. I guess I had better start looking at what I'm going to need to take and how much food/water to pack along.

If you have ideas or thoughts, let me know. I'll take good links for resources too.

No riding

There will not be any riding for the next couple days. I'm in Omaha for work. Boo!

Does anyone know of any bike shops in the old downtown area of Omaha? I might have some time tomorrow evening to check out some cyclism. I wish I could have brought my bike. I've heard people bike here. Is that true?

During the 5-0 people talk. I've talked to some of those people while peddling along the trail. They come from Omaha. They say they bike. Where do they ride? That is the ultimate question.

Until later...
