Hundreds of bicyclists are currently making their way across the state of Kansas.
Atchison, Kansas, Chamber of Commerce Director Jacque Pregont said the ‘Biking Across Kansas’ ride ends on Saturday.
“The Bike Across Kansas people are going to end their bike ride across the long, wide state of Kansas here in Atchison, so they’ll be coming to dip their wheels in the Missouri River and finish that bike ride that they’ve been on for eight days,” Pregont said. “We’ll have lots of activities and things going on that day too, a big block party downtown and lots of fun.”
The 501-mile bike ride began on June 8th at the Colorado border and includes stops in Hill City, Hays and Clay Center. This is the 45th annual Biking Across Kansas event.
