Ottawa Bike and Trail is hosting a series of training rides to help you get ready for Bike Across Kansas. We're planning three progressively more difficult routes with approximate distances of 30 miles, 45 miles, and 65 miles. All of the routes will be on low-traffic roads with support stops along the way to provide water and snacks. All of the rides are FREE and open to EVERYONE. You don’t even have to be registered for Bike Across Kansas to join in the fun. Complete route information and other details will be provided as we get closer.
How to sign-up:
The training rides are FREE but, we request that you RSVP so that we can get a good count. We'll also need your information so that we can community information about the ride.
All rides will start at 9:00 am at Ottawa Bike and Trail. Just follow the links below to RSVP.
Riders are expected to be self supported. We will be providing SAG stops at approximately the half-way point of each route. We will be asking for volunteer help to man the support stations. If you’re interested in volunteering please contact us.
