Today we are announcing our Discover Kansas Rails-to-Trails tours!  We want to make it easy for you and your friends to experience the Prairie Spirit and Flint Hills Trails!

One of our goals for Ottawa Bike and Trail is to make it easier for people to discover the incredible rails-to-trails network we have in Kansas. The Prairie Spirit Trail and the Flint Hills Trail are the best ways to experience the natural prairies and flint hills of Kansas.  For people that are new to the trails, it’s sometimes difficult to figure out the logistics, where to start, where to park, and where to get help.

We make it easy!
Our tours are designed to make it easy for you to get on your bike and experience the trials. Our tours make the perfect outing for a group of friends. They are also a great way to meet other riders if you are riding on your own. We offer pre-planned tours on both the Prairie Spirit Trail State Park and Flint Hills Trail State Park, but we’ll also build a custom itinerary for your group.

How do the tours work?
Our tour groups meet at Ottawa Bike and Trail for a pre-ride coffee and information session.  You and your bike are then loaded on our air-conditioned support van and transported to your chosen drop-off point on the trail. You can choose to ride the entire trail, or you can choose a starting point based on the number of miles you want to ride. You then ride the trail back to Ottawa at your own pace.

On Trail Support
Our friendly support team will meet riders at specific points along the trail to provide water, snacks, and general support. They will also have basic mechanical supplies to help you fix any problems and get back on the trail. The best part is that riders have the option of jumping on our support van at any time. This means that riders can ride as much, or as little of the trails as they want. When a rider is done for the day they can be transported to the end of the trail in air-conditioned comfort.

How Do I Sign Up?
We are scheduling our inaugural tours for the weekend of September 15th and 16th. You’ll want to be part of our inaugural group because we will be doing some special giveaways and promotions that we won’t offer on later tour dates!
