Our longest ride was on Day 5, from Salina through Abilene, Junction City, Fort Riley and Manhattan to Wamego. It was a gorgeous day and the course was mostly flat, so many riders (myself included) chose to ride a century (a 100 mile day). It was fun doing that on my "home turf", and I gave a lot of business to local restaurants for meals and civic groups for goodies! A church in Abiliene ran a great SAG stop, and another in Wamego featured wonderful pies.

My complete GPS-mapped ride report can be reviewed at Garmin Connect or Ride With GPS. Zoom in close to Zeandale Road to see how I doubled back to make the century.
