Special Event: Cowboy Trail Tour 2015

September 25-27, 2015

Norfolk to Valentine

This initial tour will be predominately unsupported and you will need to ride self-contained so bring gear to accommodate the late September weather. We will be stopping at most of the towns along the way to fill up water bottles, grab food, and check out local attractions. The goal of this tour is to assess the current condition of the Cowboy Trail and the feasibility of hosting this as an annual tour. By doing this I hope to raise awareness and increase traffic on the trail which will bring more tourism to the towns along its path. I am looking for a group of experienced cyclists to come out and participate in this tour with me, anyone is welcome! I have linked the Facebook Page for the event which contains a route map with overnight towns.
