Re: Omaha B-Cycle (Bike Share Program)

That's great they added the 3 locations downtown. I'd imagine the next few stations will link the Aksarben/UNO stations and the downtown ones. I'd go with "downtown" Dundee, UNMC, Midtown Crossing, and maybe the Joslyn for the next 4. CU and a CenturyLink/TDA Park stop should be on the sho...

I went and shot this view again, had been wanting to catch Coors Field's lights on. This one is also a little wider than my standard, with Glass House towers on the left.

Thanks!  I don't recall going over Sloans Lake. I had him make a beeline to downtown, do about 3 loops around,  a loop around Cherry Creek, then down to the Tech Center, then flyby DT on the way back to Rocky Mountain Airport. I'll post some more up when I can.
