Lincoln has 128 miles of bike trail bliss. Take advantage of it and give riding to work or running errands by bike a try.
Thanks to the Antelope Valley Project trails you can ride from Military & Antelope Valley Parkway at the statefair grounds all the way to South street and only have to stop once at Randolph. (IF you even have to stop at the light) That's 3.6 miles.
Try finding a stretch of road in the heart of the city 3.6 miles long without any intersections or cross traffic to stop for!
You are running out of excuses, the time to start riding more is now.
