Just planning for a ride in the spring time..... Has anyone on here rode from Omaha (Council Bluffs) to Des Moines IA? I am looking for a very bike friendly route with the most paved shoulders as possible. I would break the ride up into 2 days, so if you have a good 1/2 way point stop I would like to know that too.
Waterford 1200, Raleigh Record converted to a single speed.
PM me Joe. I live half-way. Your only good choice that's safe is to avoid hiway 6 and 92. Get on the county roads. G35 from Underwood all the way to Atlantic isn't bad, but it is very hilly. From my place near Brayton to Des Moines is a piece of cake.
