I'm from Hutchinson. We've got one trail, although it can be considered three depending on where you start. It's a very safe place to ride, even late at night, but there are VERY few places that have a place to lock your bike up. I ride my bike instead of driving quite frequently, so this is an issue for me. But I still like it here.

Hello Jayhawkers! Happy that spring is here at last. There is nothing better for cardio than a 30 mph south wind.

Yep, we sure have had about all the weather choices there are the last few weeks. The wind kicked my butt last night and tonight too. Seems like it is always against you no matter wich way you go!

That wind was killer yesterday evening. I had to shorten my 20 mile ride to 10 miles, and I still got worn out more than usual. It was a bad day to ride a single speed.

Thought I'd stop in and say Hi to you Kansas folks. I'm a native Kansan, born up in KC and raised in Edwardsville. I've been living in Hutchinson for the last 5 years, and was sidetracked for 10 years living out near Seattle.

Bioflamingo, we've probably crossed paths on the trail one time or another.

I'm happy to keep this thread going. I'm in Manhattan, where I've lived for a little over three years. Not much in the way of paths/trails (or even bike lanes) around here, but I've found some pretty good road rides. There's lots of beautiful scenery out in the Flint Hills. The only problem is that for every hill you go down, there's one you must go up

My only problem with this site is how old some of the threads are. They should thin out some of the older stuff. I'll see something that interests me, want to respond and then realize the last post was two years ago.

This one's been around a while, but I may as well jump in. I live in Olathe (Kansas City burb for the unfamiliar) and have always said, anyone who says Kansas is flat has never ridden a bicycle here.

I'm in Hutch. If you see someone riding their bike to work, it's me!
I head down 4th from west of Fun Valley and NEVER see another cyclist!

So what happened to all the people who showed up on Bike-to-work day?

I probably will not be able to do the BAK... the word is busy. On the other hand I will get in the miles, even though without the group. I am now in Pratt, was in Great Bend for a while.
Keep on keeping on
