End of August Update & Reminder!

Lincoln is now leading Madison by over 70,000 points! But, it’s not over yet! Lincoln has really been putting the hurt on Madison lately, earning more points than Madison for more than two-thirds of the days in August. Our lead is now sitting at 77,742 points, and, if anything, is trending upwards. Everyone definitely deserves a giant pat on the back for all their hard work and logging! With that said, the gap is not […]

Getting Along: Lights

If you haven’t noticed yet, you will soon: The days are getting shorter, and it’s easier every day to find yourself caught without a light while you’re out riding. Pull ’em out, charge ’em up, use ’em – it’s the law! From the Lincoln Municipal Code: 10.48.110  (b) Light, Front. Every bicycle operated on the streets of Lincoln, paved walkways through city parks or on Lincoln’s designated pedestrian-bicycle trails between one-half hour after sunset and […]

Getting Along: A First Attempt at Gravel Worlds

I was going to wait until next year. I followed the status of Gravel Worlds 2016 signup just closely enough to intentionally miss the start of it, hoping it would fill up right away and I’d “accidentally” miss my chance. I just started riding gravel in May of this year, after all, and I think I can still count the number of gravel rides I’ve done on my fingers. I’ve become a regular on Cycle […]

Trail Ramblings: A Nice Ride In The Country, Or Slaying The Dragon?

This will be my last post for a while, as I’ll be in China for the next ten months. I hope to be bicyclincoln’s foreign correspondent and get the occasional post sent in from there. Now though, Saturday’s ride. Gravel Worlds is in my view, the pinnacle of the cycling season here in Lincoln. Though I know some of you are more partial to road racing, others to mountain biking, and yet others to cyclocross, […]

Get Out and Ride: August 22-28

Get Out and Ride (GOAR) is a Sunday night blog post that we’ll do our best to consolidate all the bicycling events, rides, and races coming up in the next week into one easy to digest list of details and links with a different featured event each week. The plan will be to update these posts with more events and details as the week goes on, and help get more people in the know about cycling related activities around Lincoln. Feel free to email us at info@bicyclincoln.nebraska.bike with events we may have missed, updates to events we have listed, or future events in the coming weeks.

Getting Along: Take Action

You see a lot while you’re on the bike. Potholes. Dead animals. Face-smacking foliage. Signs mowed down by vehicles. You might think to yourself, “Hmph! Someone should fix that!” Someone very well might, but they have to know about it first. Here’s where the City of Lincoln’s Action Center comes in. From the main City of Lincoln website, click on “City Service Request” under “Citizen Action Center” to get to this page: You’ll notice on the side of that page […]

Trail Ramblings: I Found Chief Standing Bear's Almost Finished Trail Head.

Last month I wrote about riding the Homestead Trail to Beatrice to check out the trail head of the Chief Standing Bear Trail to Marysville, KS. At the border of Kansas it turns into the Blue River trail, but it’s continuous from the Homestead trail beginning at Saltillo to Marysville. When a few more trails and links are repaired or completed it will be possible to ride on to Omaha via the Mopac from Lincoln […]
