Commuting by bicycle takes some planning and, in some cases, a few extra accessories. The information provided by Team Kaos includes how to select a bicycle (if you do not already have one), other accessories you might need, tips for safe riding and identifying routes which are best for bicycles and a link to the Omaha metropolitan area bike and hike trail map.
"Cycling instead of driving not only saves on gas, but it is also a tremendous way to gain fitness," said Marco Vasquez, Kaos team captain and a perfusionist at The Nebraska Medical Center. "The downside of bicycle commuting can be the weather and traffic conditions. The information we are providing will help riders deal with those obstacles a little better."
Team Kaos members and the staff of Bike Masters Cycling & Fitness at 129th & Fort are available to answer questions about bike commuting, riding as a fitness activity or the competitive aspect of the sport.
