The Omaha Connect Ride offers two routes: a quarter century and half century route. Both are relatively flat with some hills. The Half Century ride has a portion on HWY 77, but there is a shoulder. It is recommended that all riders use the shoulder and ride in single file.
Some portions of both routes will be on lightly traveled country roads or on County or State highways (with a shoulder).
