Patches recently had the idea that we ride another century yet this year and wanted to go to Nebraska City. I was game and invited others to come along for part of the way, or the whole day. Six of us met up at Holmes Lake at 7:00 this morning even though it was only 35'F.
We took the Antelope Creek Trail out to Highway 2 and turned east. By about 9:00 all but Patches and I had peeled off to ride to Eagle or back to Lincoln.
Patches and I rode into a light headwind to Nebraska City and made a b-line for downtown. We found a great restaurant and had dinner (not to be confused with supper). Then we rode around Nebraska City a little. We made our way to Arbor Lodge and the Lied Lodge then rode down some of Nebraska City's bike path.
We got back on Highway 2 and with a breeze at our backs we rolled back to Lincoln. We got back a couple of miles short of a century so we rode a lap around Holmes Lake to hit 100 miles for the day. It was Patches 3rd century after the one on TDN and Gravel Worlds earlier this year. Today was my 2nd for 2010 after the one I got on TDN. This was the first time either of us had rode to Nebraska City. It was a great day to spend on bikes and definitely the easiest century I've ever done. Today's miles = 101.3
