Today we started riding at 4:15 am as Night Riders for 2h with the goal of Topeka 200 km away. We were riding on the bicycling prairie spirit trail for 80 km and made good progress. But then we had the first two stops for repair works of the whole tour so far. After 140 km we found out that Kansas is not flat! After 160 km we were so exhausted that a guy Picked us up in Overbrook and drove us 30 km to a campground where we had a shower. Now we are sitting in the Ramada lobby near the Amtrak Train station. After the thunderstorm has passed we will take the train at midnight from Topeka KS to La Junta Colorado. We liked Kansas much more than expected!
