This was the 40th anniversary of Biking Across Kansas, and to celebrate there was a reunion held on Day 4 after we rode from Ellinwood to Salina. Ellsworth and Kanapolis offered some quaint sight-seeing along the way. Salina was preparing for the Smoky Hill River Festival, so food vendors and entertainmers were available in Oakdale Park.

My complete GPS-mapped ride report can be reviewed at Garmin Connect or Ride With GPS.
