I've wanted to do this ride for a long time. When I first started doing week-long tours I did the Tour de Kota in South Dakota a couple times, and that is held the same week as BAK. From east of Ottawa to Eudora will be on roads I've ridden. Usually that's the far end of a 50ish mile loop. The rest of the ride will be new terrain for me. It should be fun to spend the week riding across the state I've called home for 22 years. And it should be a nice warm up for the CRMBT in August.
