Kansas Byways Bicycle Guide

Kansas Byways KSByways.org, a web site created by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, "identifies and designates a system of scenic roads in Kansas for the enjoyment of the traveling public":

Kansas has eleven byways, eight scenic, two of which are National Scenic Byways and three historic byways. In addition to being beautiful drives, the byways each have a fascinating history and an abundance of activities to enjoy.

Of course, the byways are more than just "beautiful drives" – to appreciate the beauty, scenery, and history of the byways, a bicycle is an ideal vehicle, slow enough to really experience the country you pass through, yet fast enough to travel the length of (most) byways in a single, glorious day.
