Kandango Bicycle Tour explores the “road less traveled” while engaging local communities.

(Small Town, KS) — In its third year, Kandango is a three-day ride on the back roads of Kansas, June 4 - 7, 2015. Unlike other bike tours, Kandango focuses on the “road less traveled.” The tour highlights and engages pass-through communities and unique local attractions through the Flint and Smoky Hills regions. Kandango encourages cyclists of all skill levels the chance to explore those hidden gems, from brews to views, like The Sandstone Saloon in Brookville and S.P. Dinsmoor's Garden of Eden in Lucas.

More than a just another bike tour, “The K-Tour” (also “K2r”) features events to bring together riders and communities daily. Gella’s Diner and Lb. Brewing Co. are putting together a block party in Hays on Thursday. There’s a band, 12-oz. pours and a dinner special. Friday festivities begin at the Midland Railroad Hotel in Wilson. The K2r signature barbecue extravaganza, Saturday night in Abilene, rounds out the weekend nights.

Kandango offers riders a novel support system, using motor coaches with support trucks to haul bikes. K2r buses operate on a schedule, similar to a bus line, so riders can customize their miles and take in the sights. Additionally, riders can sign up for round-trip transport from Overland Park, KS, or Madrid, Iowa.

The 2015 Kandango tour covers 250 miles, starting in Hays and ending in Junction City. With an Old West theme and heritage, Kandango riders explore the same country as Wild Bill and other fabled characters of western folklore and heritage. Our travelogue shares history and attractions for every town on the tour on Participants are encouraged to visit local businesses for food and entertainment in pass-through communities.

The website ( features landmarks, local spots for suds and grub, tips for the K2r cyclist and easy sign-up.
