This is Marshal Taco’s favorite ride, and parts of it inspired the creation of Kandango. The route follows many of our favorite back roads and drops down to Highway 4, to pass through vintage old communities with native stone buildings.
The road ride leaves Blue Earth Plaza, in Manhattan, and heads south on McDowell Creek Road. We stop in Alta Vista, Dwight and White City along the way. The ride ends at in Junction City at the Courtyard by Marriott.

Kandango Unpaved route
We have created off routes that keep the off the beaten path crowd in the middle of the fun, all day long. Kandango Unpaved leaves the main ride to travel some very scenic back country south of Junction City, and rejoins the ride at the top of J Hill Road.
Shuttle to Manhattan
The ride ends at the Courtyard by Marriott. Riders and bikes are returned to Manhattan on buses and trucks leaving, hourly, between 1 and 6.
Have some fun at the Courtyard while you wait for the bus
Air conditioned lounge and open bar and restaurant. Have a cold one with your friends before hopping on a bus to return to Manhattan.
