Opening Day For Trails


Yesterday we celebrated the Rails-To-Trails Conservancy’s Opening Day Of Trails with a ride on the near-by Prairie Sunset trail. We began in Wichita and rode 13 miles to the trails current end in the town of Garden Plain. The trail runs east and west and with the trees, bushes and sections where it’s dug in to the hillside, we were slightly protected from the 25 mph south wind. While in Garden Plain we stopped at the two bar & grills for lunch and beverages. At the second stop we really enjoyed our conversation with the owner which ranged from cars (while watching the Mecum auto auction on tv) to MAD magazine which we found out is still being printed. He even gave us hats. On the return ride we crossed paths with a friend who was also enjoying a ride on the trail.
