We again left US-36 for quieter state roads on Day 5 en route to Marysville. The winds decided to blow hard from the SE, meaning we spent the day with at least a component of headwind. I enjoyed a long lunch in Barnes to recover and refuel from the exertion. Marysville offered a proper beer garden that evening to help ease the pain.

The challenging day took us 70 miles, which you can view in detail at
Garmin Connect or at Ride With GPS.

Oddly enough, the settlers of Cuba were mostly of Czech and Austrian descent.






The "SAG Hags" again, in appropriate Kansas plains attire.






"Strawberry, a town named for the wild strawberries which grew here..."






OMG, cute kids running a lemonade stand - with kittens!






Barnes made for a good lunch stop on a tough, windy day.









Lots to see and do in Marysville.



The Marysville beer garden, near the bike path, with genuinely good craft beer!

The Kansas Territory Breakfast Brown was especially good.



The Pony Express ran through here.
