Missouri was the start of the hills after Kansas. I actually found them easier than the constant wind of Kansas.


I thought Kansas would be easy 100 mile days because it's flat. Instead I had 40-50 mile days because of the wind. The people were really nice though.


I rode from the backrange over Trailridge pass down to Denver and East to Kansas. Outside of Granby I stayed a few nights at a dude ranch courtesy of a fellow rider I met in Wyoming.
