Start at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo (27th & ‘A’ St). Ride south on the Rock Island Trail then east on the Boosalis (Hwy 2) Trail to Old Cheney Rd. Cross the highway and proceed east on Hwy 2 to Nebraska City. At the Hwy 75 interchange on the west side of town, take Business Hwy 2 into town. Once in Nebraska City, jog a few blocks north for lunch at Johnny’s Corner Cafe at 600 Central Avenue. Return to Lincoln by the same route. This makes a good early-season century, as the grades on the highway are gradual and there is a shoulder all the way.
