Note to self: Bring bicycle to K.C. next time

The Missouri Bicycle Federation uses Twitter to spread the news about Missouri bicycling. That’s how I heard about this:

Swope Park opens an urban hiking and mountain biking trail system.

Swope Park opens an urban hiking and mountain biking trail system.

Kansas City Parks and Recreation in partnership with Earth Riders Trails Association (ERTA) will host the grand opening of a planned 16 mile primitive, recreational trail system within Swope Park. The formal dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled at 10:00am Saturday, November 15 followed immediately by the official opening of the trail. The celebration is free and open to anyone who wishes to attend.

If you know of other fun-sounding places to ride within reasonable driving distance of Cedar Rapids (or even long-weekend pedaling distance), let me know by adding a comment here.

K.C. is pushing the limits of a reasonable drive for me, but my brother and his family live there so I’ll do it now and then. 😉

Pedal on.
