Welcome to Kansas Cyclist!
Kansas Cyclist is the web's premier resource for cycling in the great state of Kansas.
Though not blessed with flashy features such as mountains or oceans, Kansas does offer subtle beauty to those
who can appreciate the surprising diversity of landscapes and terrain within its borders.
As well as great natural beauty, Kansas offers countless miles of roads and trails, for both on-road and off-road cycling.
And contrary to popular opinion, Kansas is not entirely flat, with its share of hills, rivers, and valleys.
