My favorite place to eat out in Lincoln is Sam and Louie’s so when Ross suggested we go bike there for food I was totally willing. I learned that from my house, to the Pine Lake Sam and Louie’s and home again is about 16 miles. The weather was actually pretty nice for riding and I was able to enjoy my dinner knowing that I had at least got some exercise getting there and back home. The downside, we learned, was that there are no bike racks at either little strip mall at 14th and Pine Lake. We ended up locking our bikes to a railing on the back side of the building, pictured here:
