BIKING ACROSS KANSAS
The 2002 BAK was my first trip on a single bike. The previous three trips were on our tandem and I had some concerns about being able to finish each day's mileage without the help of "stoker Stefanie." Training time was limited this past spring and the longer rides I was able to complete did nothing for my confidence as I usually came home very tired and sore.
I chose to ride the A Route (outlined in RED above). I was somewhat familiar with the route as it was similar to the trip Stefanie and I took on the 2000 BAK. Some new towns, new roads, but hopefully the same fun!
The northern third of Kansas is a great place for the BAK . The terrain is interesting, the towns friendly, and the weather a little (I said a little) more hospitable than the southern third of the state.
