After nearly 300 miles of riding along the same road (Route 96) I finally turned on to a new one today! Yippee. Exciting times!! ;) That may give you an idea of how monotonous Kansas has been so far.
I have also left the official ACA bike route and maps that I have come to rely on. They have really simplified things giving me great info on upcoming towns, details of services along the route etc etc.
I will be fine travelling with a standard Map but I'm going to have to spend a bit more time planning before setting off each day.
I had been told that Kansas has its own beauty and after today I can say I have witnessed it. It required some respite from the wind for me to be able to see and enjoy it though.
It was a nice calm day with plenty of sunshine interspersed between lots of small pockets of cloud. The fields rolled more, became greener and lots of trees appeared which was all easy on the eye.
It was still a fairly boring day by previous standards, however the miles seemed to fly which made a refreshing change from the last 2 days.
I covered 92.65 miles.
My onward itinerary is to travel to Chicago for the 25th of June via Kansas City. I'm not sure of an exact route or any towns etc to pass through. I will keep you posted though.
