Partial Route

(31.8 miles)

We heard your feedback, and are using it to improve on last year’s ride! From Brookside the route will head north through downtown and ultimately through the northeast neighborhood of KC to Cliff Drive. From there we will go through the river bottoms and into the River Market, ultimately running through midtown before getting back to Roeland Park. Compared to 2014, the route has moved farther from the river and into the East Bottoms to facilitate a safer ride.
