Garden City to Dodge City, KS
Easy 51 miles! Part tailwind, part early low temperatures = nice bike ride.
Our riders got up later to load after traveling 230 miles the past two days. They were on the road at 8 AM and some were in Dodge City by noon. That included a stop in Cimarron, KS and Clark’s Pharmacy. They have real, old-time sodas, floats, malts, and ice cream. A treat for sure!
The rest of the ride was generally spent cruising highway 50, looking for photo opportunities. They passed by an historic marker that included an area where you could still see remnants of the Santa Fe Trail. At the Dodge City line, they could climb a short hill to get their picture taken there. Some ventured farther into Dodge City to take in Boot Hill, the gunfight, and the trains.
A good rest day!
Tomorrow they head out again to Great Bend, and 86 mile ride that takes them further into Kansas.
Come back and see how they did.
