Good ride!

Thanks to Gabriel, Griffin, Micah, Dan O and the Dirty Kanza's own Jim C for coming out and making the inagural MTB-KC event a success! Good ride at a good pace. Finished 56-ish miles in about 4.5 hours, with a few pee breaks, a couple mechanical breaks, and a quik trip stop thrown in for good measure. Hope to see you all at the Lawrence Legato May 22! Look for levy, singletrack, gravel roads, more single track, commuter trail and just a very tiny section of road to get you back to free state brewery :)

Hello all:

The singletrack is portion of tomorrow's MTB-KC ride is obviously going to get cut out, but there will be an alternate route we will be taking. This ride will be road bike friendly (but bumpy), super cross bike friendly, obviosuly MTB friendly and probably end up around 75 miles on mostly some commuter trail routes and roads. Meet at 8 am on the Plaza by the horse statue in JC nichols park if you would like to join the adventure. Cue sheets will be provided. Good weather tomorrow, no rain and sunny! see mtbkc.blogspot.com for more

hope to see you there.
