What is Kandango?

Kandango is a four-day bicycle tour in Central Kansas featuring scenic back roads, historical small towns, and interesting attractions you won’t see on other bike tours. We find the most interesting back roads and design our courses to take the roads less traveled.

We offer both road and gravel rides. We bring the rides together several times on Friday. The rides intersect at Coronado Heights Castle, Lindsborg, Marquette and Kanopolis Lake. On Saturday, the rides come together in Kanopolis and Mushroom Rock State Park.

Discover Kansas at 15 MPH. If you think Kansas is flat and boring, you will discover what our riders have learned from previous K2rs - Kansas is beautiful, and it sure isn’t flat. You just have to work harder to find its hidden treasurers – the old West history, obscure geology and the big skies. The big skies, did we mention the big skies? They are spectacular!

Before, during and after the ride

On Thursday, join us at Chuck’s Bar for a meet and greet to kick things off.

On Friday and Saturday mornings, the United Methodist Church is hosting a breakfast before each ride.

On Friday’s rides, Lindsborg is the half-way point for both rides and is hosting a party at the town square, featuring food vendors, music and beer.

On Saturday, Brookville and the Sandstone Saloon are hosting the 6th annual BBQ Extravaganza.

Stuff you won't see on other tours

We may be the only bike ride in the world to take riders through an active bombing range. The Smoky Hills Bombing Range is both beautiful and fascinating.

The Coronado Heights Castle, Mushroom Rocks, and Marquette all offer hidden treasures. 

The roadies are treated to some beautiful open range riding through the Smoky Hills.

Road Rides (we call it the K2r)

We started Kandango in 2013 featuring spectacular road rides. This year's ride takes you through scenic backroads, featuring rolling hills, historic cowtowns and even a wind farm or two.

Gravel Rides (UnPaved)

We added our gravel ride in 2016 - Kandango UnPaved. This spring we take you the final frontier- an active bombing range.

Sandstone Saloon

All roads lead to Brookville

The sun rises and sets at the Sandstone Saloon. Join us at 6 AM for a chuck wagon breakfast at the Sandstone on Friday and Saturday. All rides begin and end in Brookville. After the ride, there will be bands, food and beer until 10.

Showers and overnight bike storage are available at the high school. And the campers have a shady campground across the street.

Show up early and stay late! The Sandstone is our favorite stop on any trail.
