In Nebraska we're just ducking storms after storm etc etc. Lucky for me, most of the flooding stuff isn't occuring in my neck of the woods. I told Phys I'd hunt up some pitchurs of it....so ON the NNC rig I went, following the local MUT around town, close to dusk

Last night there was about another inch of rain and 30mph sustained winds, reported tornados....so I was hoping things would be rideable....

Out on the plains people need to have patterns in how they mow--I think they need a hobby...

Bike are nice.


The MUTs often have bridge overpasses which are nice because....

Out here in the plains things are either above ground level....

...or things such as the MUT underpasses they are below ground level....

Which as you see is a problem. That is a max of 2 ft deep of water-and since I'm on the roadie, tonight I'm taking it easy and this is the only major artery that I have to cross traffic--all the longer underpasses downtown are unreachable due to either water, or construction or both :( :cryin: This underpass is close to the only major lake in town...which I'll hit on the way back

So off up we go along the next stretch of MUT....in case you're wondering only about 75F out with little wind. Beautiful. I don't know where those squirrels are staying in doors

1st tree casualties....I was thinking I'd see more-since often the city isn't too quick about cleaning up-but only saw another.


More rollers....folk call this one a "hill" roudn here-which from my NY upstate years is kind of funny.


I couldn't resist this one :)

Where the trail goes it is usually quite nice....

An empty MUT, great concept.
When it's not in use--it's fun (I try to not snap pics of unwilling victims faces/plates, also) ...at the start or end of teh public school day, roadie or beware! :eek:



You'd better Phys!

Damn! If we had MUTs like that here, I'd still have my roadie...Their idea of making something bicycle friendly here is to paint cyclists as targets on the road. I've seen trucks with silhouttes of cyclists painted on their driver side door, like WWII fighter pilots. Nice pics, thanks for sharing. Ain't it usually rilly hot and muggy by now in Lincoln?

Yum, green water! Riding or wading I think is definitely out of the question when water is that perfect green. At least you guys don't have alligators or pythons to worry about. That'd make those MUTs really fun when they flooded!
