National Bike Challenge
We're back! Last year, KVBC and Topeka triumphed in the National Bike Challenge competition, hosted by Endomondo and sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and Kimberly-Clark. We're not planning on resting on our laurels in 2013.
Simply go to the National Bike Challenge website, click "Join" and then search for Kaw Valley Bicycle Club or KVBC to sign up for one of our teams. Let's show the country that we flatlanders are tough riders.
Topeka Bikeways Advisory Committee
Two club board members are representing cycling interests on the new Topeka Bikeways Advisory Committee. This group has two main goals: enacting the city's bikeways master plan and, ultimately, gaining Bicycle Friendly Community status from the League of American Bicyclists. The advisory committee meets twice a month. So far, its members have lobbied hard for adding bicycle access to the Shunga Trail off Kansas Avenue and to the Landon Trail at Kansas Avenue and 33rd Street.
