Colorado Bus

A Bus from Colorado?

Before you start thinking this is a loco motive, consider the numbers -

Hays is 340 miles from Denver (about a 5 hour drive). The return to Denver from Brookville, KS is about 425 miles (about 6 1/2 hours). The Iowa posse travels 468 miles (about 7 hours) to get to Kandango, and 392 miles on the return home (6 hours).

On the 2015 K2r, over 10 people traveled from Denver, and points west, to join our ride. Many have already told us they plan to return in 2016.

Here's the deal, Lucille.

We challenge our riders from Colorado to pony up an extra buck, and sign up for a bus ride. We will add a bus from Denver if the posse can grow to 30 riders. Your extra dollar will be held until we reach the minimum.  When we have 30 riders sign up for this option, we will add the bus.

We will provide a method to pay the difference ($54) with an option on the website. If we don't hit the numbers, we will refund your buck prior to ride time.

Go ahead and splurge with that extra George Washington, and throw down on a full ride deal from the Rocky Mountain State--and tell your friends. Better yet, bring your team. If you don't have one, get your friends together and create your own team.

The Details

Our chartered bus transports you and your bike to Hays, Kansas, and return you back to where you boarded on Sunday. Your bikes will be carefully loaded onto an accompanying gear truck with plenty of padding to protect your ride.

The Colorado bus will originate in the Denver area, at a location to be determined, and can make stops along the way to pick up riders and gear on its way to Kandango. On the return trip, it will stop at all points where riders were picked up.
