Kandango @ Blue Earth Plaza
Jun 8 @ 7:00 am

Kandango is 3 1/2 days of bicycle rides on the back roads of Kansas.  It originated in 2013, as a tour through the Flint and Smoky Hills regions of Kansas.  Its central themes are to ride the road less traveled (but far more interesting), take the time to explore the pass-through communities and see the local attractions during the ride.  The 2017 event is June 8-11.  Paved and gravel routes from Manhattan are available each day.  Camping and lodging packages in Manhattan are available.  For more information go to www.ridekandango.com.
