Going to Downtown Omaha for the College World Series but don't want to pay for parking?

The Bike to the Ballpark, organized by Omaha Bikes will be offering free valet bike parking during CWS games and events. 

The bike corral will be located on Mike Fahey Street, between 13th and 14th streets in Downtown Omaha.

During CWS, the corral will be open one hour before the day’s first pitch until 30 minutes after the last out.

Officials say the corral will also operate during Opening Celebration Day from 7 p.m. until 30 minutes after Friday evening’s firework show.

Those attending CWS can also use the citywide bike share program called Heartland B-cycle.

Heartland B-cycle has 33 stations and 180 bikes, many of them are located within minutes of TD Ameritrade Park.

Officials say that B-cycle stations are open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., and riders can check out bicycles by buying a $6 pass at the kiosk or online.
