Building community one trail at a time.

Trails Have Our Respect, or THOR, a local Chapter of the International Mountain Biking Association. And, we are dirt addicts. We like to not only ride bicycles on dirt trails, but also run and hike. And we want to share these experiences with everyone, so we design, build and maintain many trails in and around Omaha, Bellevue Council Bluffs, Fremont and Lincoln. We keep them mowed, trimmed and safe for all users. We clear downed trees and repair damage caused by erosion and over use. Maybe you thought this was done by the city or state park’s office. Nope, probably our volunteers; just a group of regular folks who want to have good, safe trails to play on.

And what we put in comes back ten-fold. We hold fun events like group bike rides, for adults and kids, we support bicycle races, and we even have certified coaches who teach kids how to ride safely on trails through our DEVO program. It’s always about looking at the future and making sure our trails will be around for a long time for future generations. You should join us!
