Day 58 Scott City, KS to Tribune, KS

Total distance: 47 miles, +/- elevation: 997/289, Total distance so far: 2023. Temperature: Mostly cloudy and in the 70’s.

Weather finally broke and temperatures in the 70’s made for a pleasant ride to the City Park in Tribune where we camped for the night. This will be our last night in Kansas. We are only 14 miles from Colorado.

Mark, Pat, Shelly, Jens, Joe at the hostel after breakfast at Broiler Bar and restaurant in Scott City. Joe headed east. Shelley and Jens rode with us west to Tribune.

We are route 96 for over 300 miles. Not a lot of navigation needed on this segment. The roads in Kansas have been pretty good, decent shoulder, low to moderate traffic, surface in good shape and lots of signs for our bike route 76. A few share the road with bicycles and give bikes 3 feet signs hopefully made people aware that bikes are going to be on the road.

Riding along in the middle of nowhere we saw a bakery! Our maps and gps are pretty good about identifying places to stop along the route but this was not listed so it was a pleasant surprise. Enjoyed some baked goods and refreshments.

We went over 2000 total miles today! View from the driver’s seat of Pat’s bike. Components left to right: rubber ducky, switch for headlight & taillight, lizard from lizard lips cafe in Toronto, Kansas, odometer/speedometer, Garmin GPS. Also solar light charging on top of handlebar bag.

Nice campsite at the Tribune City Park. Little league baseball games going on but did not stop us from falling asleep.

  1. So glad weather cooperated for your night under the stars. Did it get a bit chilly in the a.m.? No wonder Pat’s bike is heavy, she’s toting a zoo. Such great experiences you are having. Welcome Colorado. Be safe!
