May is Bike Month

Prairie Travelers will have a Prairie Sunset Trail bicycle ride on Saturday, May 17th. We will meet at the trailhead in Goddard at 1:00 pm for the option of riding 4, 12 or 16 miles of the trail, or combine it with a road ride to McArthur Rd, past Lake Afton to 295th or on to Cheney and return on the trail from Garden Plain for a total distance up to 30 or so miles. Distance can be more or less by extending your route choice. The trail is a limestone base making a fatter tire or cyclocross tire your best option. If you opt to ride your road bike we will keep you on paved roads with a sag break at the covered bridge at our trailhead in Garden Plain. So all styles of bicycles will work!!

Enjoy the day, warm up your muscles for the annual Wicked Wind 100 bicycle ride the following morning and join us on Sedgwick County's first rails to trails complete with a covered bridge (a memorial to long time WW100 organizer Cecile Kellenbarger) and a tunnel at Yoder Airpark!

The trailhead in Goddard is located 1/2 mile south of Kellogg on 199th. St W and the City Park at Santa Fe St.

Be sure to mark your calendars and come out and join the fun!

Trail Benefits

Everyone wins with the preservation of transportation corridors and the development of linear trails: the nation retains a vital resource, the public gains a place to safely walk or ride, the railroads retain the right to restore rail service in the future, small towns can receive an economic boon, and adjacent landowners obtain access to a recreational facility and increased property values.

By helping to preserve Kansas' heritage and recreational opportunities, you will be giving your children and grandchildren an irreplaceable gift - living history. If the linear trails project cannot be kept on track, so to speak, the corridors may be lost forever. That is why Prairie Travelers needs your help.
