The Biking Across Kansas 2019 route will make its way through Lincoln County again, as bicyclists will travel from an overnight stay in Wilson, up the Post Rock Scenic Byway to Highway 18, and on eastward to Minneapolis for another overnight stay.
“Biking Across Kansas is excited to have Lincoln on our route again this year. We anticipate many riders will stop in Lincoln between and for a mid-ride meal and/or visit local museums,” Stefanie Weaver, Executive Director of Biking Across Kansas, Inc., said.
The 45th year of the longest-running bicycling event in Kansas history, a 497-mile ride across the State, begins Saturday, June 8, 2019. Biking Across Kansas is an eight-day tour originating at the Kansas-Colorado line with over 800 bicyclists, including support staff.
