Leave Nebraska City early in the morning, ride uneventfully to Lincoln, NE. What little map information I can glean from my road map about Lincoln allows me to slowly but surely dead-reckon orienteer my path across Lincoln to US route 34. I end the day at Branched Oak Lake State Recreation Area.
Lincoln seemed like a nice town. I also ended up crossing the University of Nebraska campus. I remember noting in downtown Lincoln how there seemed to be bike racks every where. I remember Nebraska as being the most bicycle friendly place I had passed through to date, every road had decent paved shoulders.
