Let's start an hour earlier since it will be 85 degrees by 2:00!
Less miles and more moderate pace of the M & M ride through Washington County: 53 miles of pastoral pleasure with flats and rolling hills! Starting at Insomnia Coffee (come early if you want coffee), then ride through Cedar Canyon and loop through Kansas City. Come roll with us! https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30555457
