The OwL Ride gives riders a choice of an 8-mile short course and a 17-mile extended route. The family friendly short course takes riders from downtown into midtown Omaha. The extended course adds stops in Dundee and Aksarben Village. Come join us on a cruise through the city with your nocturnal friends. You’ll see the city in a new light–by streetlight, moon light and star light (Omaha with Lights, the origin of the OwL name).  It’s guaranteed to be a hoot.

With a non-competitive format and choice of courses, both casual and serious riders and families can enjoy the unique experience of the OwL Ride. In addition, you will help people in our community. The ride is a benefit for the Meyer Foundation for Disabilities, helping us to expand much-needed services for adults with disabilities in our community.
