While it’s true that the National Bike Challenge has changed this year, we can still recognize what makes Lincoln such a great city for bicycling: the cyclists! There may not be city rankings for us to cheer, but we can cheer our accomplishments. First, as far as national rankings, we have the nation’s #1 cyclist in miles, Lincoln’s own Robb Finnegan. Congratulations, Robb!
Interestingly, we also have the identity-shy James Nobody ranked #9 nationally in number of trips. Maybe he will come out of the shadows one day. If we have more local celebrities I’ve missed, let us know.
Locally, here’s how it shook out for Cycle September.
As far as the rest of the categories, here they are regionally. If I’m correct, the Chipotle Riders ride out of Norfolk.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have safe routes?
And finally, here’s a route taking the levee trail from the north, and “Q” street.
