Along the way, the 800 or so riders spent their nights in Atwood, Norton, Smith Center, Beloit, Washington, Sabetha, and Horton. They endured a tornado warning in Washington, strong cross-winds for a few days, and lots of rolling hills in the northeastern part of the state, but overall the trip featured pleasant weather, helpful winds, beautiful countryside, friendly towns and people, and the camaraderie and fun that BAK is known for.
