It's not allowed to ride a bicycle on I-80 in Nebraska according to the signs on the on-ramps.That's because it isn't necessary since US30/US34 parallels I80 most of the way across Nebraska. The general rule of riding on interstate highways in the west is that it's allowed where there is no good parallel route, and prohibited where there is. Always check the specifics of course.
STAY ON THE PAVEMENT. Avoid wild grassy areas in particular. You will still get flats but going off pavement is really asking for trouble.+1 In addition to keeping your bike tires on pavement, stay away from the very edge of the pavement too. Ride as far out as traffic will allow. If the road is deserted, ride in the same tracks as the car tire. If you do have to take the bike off the pavement for any reason, inspect the tires carefully before riding again.
WACANID advice. I am registered to ride the Selkirk Loop in 5 days 100 - 125 kms per day. Any pretraining suggestions. I am a recreation cyclist and commuter - only done 70km max per day. Yikes!There's no magic forumla. In the words of the immortal Eddy Merckx, "Ride lots." The more miles you ride in preparation, the more comfortable the event will be. If feasible, include hills in your preparation.
