Older and longer than the famed U.S. Route 66 that is celebrated in popular culture, the Lincoln Highway was one of the first transcontinental highways across the United States. The Lincoln Highway begins at Times Square, New York City, and ends at Lincoln Park in San Francisco. That said, you don’t have to ride the whole Lincoln Highway to have an enjoyable experience. Any section will provide plenty of riding adventure. The Eastern section ends roughly in Chicago, IL, while the middle section encompasses the Great Plains states (where if you’re not careful you can lose the Lincoln Highway in the maze of small farm roads, thus adding to your adventure). After the Rockies, the Lincoln enters its Western section that carries it to the sea. Pick a section or do it all. You’ll find plenty to like and people to meet on the Lincoln Highway.
