Day 7 would have been the longest official day, but construction forced route changes that gave us an 82 mile ride to Oswego. Along the route was the Little House on the Prairie museum. The cities of Independence and Cherryvale both had food and festivities in local parks for us. Once in Oswego, the action was at the fairgrounds and the adjacent scenic Riverside Park.

My complete GPS-mapped ride report for BAK Day 7 can be read at Garmin Connect.
