Our first full day went some 53 miles from Sharon Springs to Oakley. Temperatures were moderate, but there was still a strong, gusting south wind (details). A SAG at the Fort Wallace museum and a BAK-sponsored lunch in Winona were highlights of the ride itself. Oakley was celebrating Buffalo Bill Days at their enormous statue of Willam Cody. Eating their BBQ in the high winds proved messy!
