The Stampede is almost upon us ....  here's a couple of key items.

a.) Unless indicated elsewhere, rendezvous points for all rides on Friday, Saturday, Sunday will be at the north end of Broadway in Cottonwood Falls, at the old bridge over the falls.

b.) On the Saturday main ride, we start at 9:00am with a rider meeting.

c.) All riders need to have a completed waiver, available here: http://www.backroadstouring.net/downloads/stampedewaiver_20.pdf

d.) Riders need to be familiar with ride protocols ... here's the one we've followed the past nineteen years. It has served us well: http://www.backroadstouring.org/kansas/safety.htm

e.) Truck/trailer parking. I wasn't able to get permission to use the high school parking lot, as it is considered private property. Options are the parking lots at Swope Park and Bates Grove Park located at the north end of the falls. If camping at Chase County State Lake, trailers are OK. If not camping, vehicles/trailers are not allowed if left unattended.   

Let's Ride!

Flint Hills Stampede - Postponed .....

Looking at the weather forecasts, have decided to postpone the Stampede until Fall, 2020. With incoming Friday & Saturday storms, the minimum maintenance roads will become near impassable, and riders could be exposed to lightning when riding the ridge lines. Plus, there will be little to no shelter once away from the rendezvous point. 

Am sorry to have to make this call ... but am hoping this is the better alternative to having someone injured due to poor weather/road conditions.

Best, Roger

Have rescheduled the Stampede to Sept. 18-20. All other details remain in place as far as rendezvous point in Cottonwood Falls, etc.

Hopefully, we'll get better weather than what we're getting this weekend.

Best, Roger
