Lunar Kanza

July 28 2018
Emporia, Kansas, USA

Created by the same folks who bring you Dirty Kanza 200, Lunar Kanza is not a race... it's a ride. The Lunar Kanza 50 is a fun, leisure night-time bike ride, conducted under a full moon on the gravel roads surrounding Emporia, Kansas. Using an out-and-back format, riders will have the option of turning around at any point along the course. Riders completing the full course will cover approximately 50 miles. The Lunar Kanza 50 will begin and end at the intersection of Commercial Street and 8th Avenue, in beautiful downtown Emporia, Kansas. The ride will utilize a "floating" start time. Riders are encouraged to begin their ride anytime between 6:00pm and 8:00pm, with the intent of finishing between the hours of 10:00pm and 11:00pm. (Don't begin too early, or you will miss riding under the full moon. Begin your ride too late, and you'll miss the post-ride block party.)

The course will take riders from downtown Emporia, out onto the gravel roads of the Flint Hills region of east-central Kansas. Once home to the great Kanza Nation, the Flint Hills have been called the "eastern-most part of the Great Far West". Come out and experience these Flint Hills in a brand new way... under the light of the full moon. Afterwards, hang out and enjoy the Lunar Kanza Block Party. Your event entry fee will include admission to the block party, along with one meal voucher and two drink vouchers. The meal will be provided by a yet-to-be-determined local food vendor. Drinks will be provided by Mulready's Pub, and will include various craft beers, and assorted soft drinks. Additional meals and drinks will be available for purchase.
