ABOUT Bike with Mike
Mike Kutilek was an outgoing and healthy young man who enjoyed a number of outdoor activities, but he especially loved biking. He learned to ride a bike very early at age 3, and it just kept growing into long bike rides with friends on trails like the Wabash Trace. Mike especially loved the popular Wabash Trace "Taco Ride" on Thursday nights with friends and family.
In Mike's late twenties he manifested mental illness and eventually passed away in May of 2020 at age 29. The Kutilek family experienced the hardships of dealing with mental illness for a loved one, along with the need for mental health resources and awareness in the Omaha community. The family is organizing an event in Mike's honor that raises funds to help support Community Alliance, a local mental health organization that is having a significant impact in the community.
