I would like to attend because it is so close to may place in Linn County, KS. However, it looks like I'll be in Oklahoma that weekend.

I am meeting with the organizer later this month to help with a route that goes into Bourbon County along the Little Osage River. It will be a nice ride for anyone that attends.

Thanks for sharing the videos and link!

I rode with both groups at the birdfarm trails. The rain was weird. We were told they got 2 inches just 4 miles north that morning. We got nothing on the birdfarm trails. The trails were perfect, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. :-D
