NOTE! This is a PREMIUM event, so it is by INVITE only. Meaning, if you are on the attending list, you are invited to ride, so all you have to do is show up. This ride is strictly working on speed, distance, and group ride etiquette and skill. This is not a casual ride! This is the reason for 'invite only'. Any issues with this, please send me, Dana Kolka, a private message to discuss. Let’s Hit the Road! Road Bike Riders, let’s meet every Wednesday to ride 20+ miles on various routes through Leawood and KCMO.

Ugly Joe's has a burger special on Wednesday so let's grab a burger and beer afterwards..
Its getting close to the end of summer, so lets get in at least one more Kayaking/SUP paddle. Lake Olathe is not very big, but enough for a good couple of hours of floating around. This is one of the few lakes in the metro that does NOT require a permit. The weather is supposed to be mid-70s, so perfect for an afternoon lazy float. Required: You are required to have a PFD. We will meet at the Olathe Lake Boat Ramp.
Let’s bike on the Katy Trail! We will set up camping at Cooper’s Landing outside of Columbia Missouri. Saturday we will have two rides: One ride around 60ish miles - bikers will be dropped off and ride back to Coopers Landing. The other ride is 34ish miles, biking from Columbia via the MKT spur to the Katy Trail. Sunday ride possible if people are interested in doing the opposite direction.
