Catch A Great Ride @ the 


Saddle up with your friends on Sunday, April 29, 2018

Start/Finish is at Celebration Park in Gardner, KS
32501 159th St (W. 159th & S. Kill Creek Road)
Large pavilion - look for the bikes!

Join us for a beautiful ride from Gardner across peaceful country roads, under shady canopies, and yet another engaging and memorable route. The Lone Star Century has something for every rider — and we're even bringing back the Darby's Hope Hill option (aka the Crazy Hard Way) for you hammerheads! 

FIVE gorgeous route choices: 
15, 48, 68 and 100 miles, and NEW this year - A Gravel Route - 25 miles of fun. 
Ride it once, or make a few laps to get in your Dirty Kanza training miles.

Terrific SAGs (that means rest stops in these parts!) with healthy, tasty snacks to refuel your body. Enjoy rustic farm communities. Smooth rollers. A breathtaking view of Clinton Lake. Plus our fantastic Ride Marshals and radio-equipped 
support team to help you enjoy every moment of your ride. 
All followed by a terrific lunch and post-ride party with refreshing craft beer from Double Shift Brewing.

Bring your friends. Bring your family. 
It's all here at the Lone Star Century, another of KC's favorite rides!
