Sun-burnt in February

“Kansas always seems to have trouble making up its mind when it comes to weather, so you are always on your toes and never trust the weatherman! However, every so often it seems to get it just right and when that happens you have to drop everything, get outside to enjoy it!  With the forecast […]

A Kansas Back Roads Metric

“Knocked out #3 with some company for a change. Jay, a roadie that I’ve been riding with on gravel quite a bit recently, came along for what turned out to be his longest day in the saddle ever.  We couldn’t have asked for better conditions, relatively light wind and ridiculously nice temps in the 60s-70s […]

Katy Trail Metric #2

“Time to ramble….. I was up before dawn. I wasn’t sure what I should bring for food. COD #1 was warmer and bike stop cafe was open in down town St. Charles. That trip I didn’t bring anything but water. We were going the opposite way and it was 0745 when we left. So that […]

A 100 Miler #1 for Jim D.

​”From the sidelines I’ve watched this event the last year or so. Thanks for hosting! I needed a motivator to push the miles a bit more than just a beer ride. But hey, let’s not push it. We all need a beer ride! 10+ hours of January Saddle Time in a day!!!!! Wow gotta love […]
