Sunday, Day 2 of BAK 2017, was a change of pace. We turned north into the Smoky Valley for both a change of scenery and a break from that incessant southwest wind. A sponsored lunch at Ransom had to be earned with a two-mile jaunt back west into the wind, but it was worth it.

I logged 75 miles on this trip to WaKeeney, and the details are at Garmin Connect or at Ride With GPS.
