Josiah Bags #11

“This was a nice ride on the Prairie Spirit Trail from Ottawa, Kansas to Iola, Kansas, and back again, so a nice There and Back Again. This was my first time in the trail, and I must say two thumbs up (I am pretty good at riding no-hands so this is safe and okay). Kansas […]

True Century

“We have some friends in Kansas City. So when the wife suggested I leave early and ride the katy and they’d (her and the kids) pick me up along the way somewhere I was intrigued. I hope to finish Leadville this august and although there is no climbing on the katy this would help my […]

Will Ride for Key Stone

“This was a nice trek into southwest Cloud County and into the wild corners of Mitchell and Ottawa Counties. I don’t know if those areas are especially wild and the roads less developed, or if it just seems that way because they are a little less familiar to me, but in either case, just that […]
