We rode from Satanta through Dodge City to Spearville on Day 2 of BAK. This led us into familar territory from last year. It was breezy, and I had the good fortune to join up with well-matched riders to paceline with. One of these fellows turned out to have ridden the original BAK 1975, and was repeating the feat on the very same vintage Masi bicycle.

My complete GPS-mapped ride report can be reviewed at Garmin Connect or Ride With GPS. Note that my Garmin battery died over lunch, so the full path is a merger of files from my Garmin and my phone.
