Biking Across Kansas — a 558-mile ride across the state — begins Saturday, with the eight-day tour originating at the Kansas-Colorado line west of Johnson City.

Overnight stops will be at Montezuma, Ashland, Pratt, Clearwater, Burden, Fredonia and then at Arma, the final night together on June 15. The following morning, the group will cycle to the Missouri border in Arcadia and cycle into Fort Scott, where they will celebrate the end of the ride with a picnic at the Fort Scott National Historic Site.

BAK is also routed through Ulysses, Meade, Greensburg, Coldwater, Zenda, Belle Plaine, Winfield, Longton, Elk City, St. Paul and many more Kansas towns.
