Cycling in Nebraska

Between trail systems, bike camping, endless gravel roads, and even finding routes to get you across the state, the options for cycling in Nebraska are endless. In an effort to shed light on what is here in Nebraska, we not only have our events calendar, but also provide you with information to help you get out and ride.


Need help picking a route? We have a handful of goodies to help.


Nebraska Highway Traffic Map

This map is a great go-to option when planning a route. It shows whether or not a highway has a shoulder, the amount of vehicle traffic, and more.


The Nebraska Game and Parks provides a guide to open-access locations across the state. If you're looking for a place to post-up for a night or two along a route, this is a great place to start.

road Review encyclopedia

Have you ridden a great road? How about a bad one? Point out a bad route or give one a killer review and help fellow cyclists find the best roads to ride.


Nebraska bike trails range from paved, single-track, to rustic dirt paths.


Cyclenebraska's list of trails

In working to create an information hub for all cyclists across the state, we've found that there isn't a comprehensive list or map of Nebraska trails. Just as with our cycling calendar, there are organizations doing great work to promote trails and they're listed below. 

However, we need your help. We want to provide a place where all of Nebraska's trails are listed, no matter how small, to help encourage people to get out and ride.

If you have information, or know of a trail that should be listed, let us know and we'll add it when we launch our list!
