Local Radio Talk Show Host Offers to Give Bicyclists a Voice
Requests Help from Cycling Community
KFAB radio talk show host Tom Becka has offered the
Becka’s challenge—the cycling community must gather and deliver 100 used winter coats to him by next Friday, May 15.
Members of the cycling community will be able to express their thoughts on issues relevant to their concerns: commuting and the need for dedicated bike lanes on streets, trail expansion and related property acquisition and other cycling issues including safety and advocacy.
Becka, a long-time critic of some bicyclists practices, promises to be even-handed and give us a fair hearing.
The Omaha Pedalers Bicycle Club is leading the effort with assistance from Activate Omaha and area bicycle shops. To donate coats, drop them off at an area bicycle shop and the Omaha Pedalers will deliver them to KFAB studios before Becka’s show next Friday.
Drop off locations:
