Dirty Kanza 200 is a solo, self-supported, non-stop, 200-mile-long bicycling endurance challenge on the gravel and dirt roads of the Flint Hills region in east-central Kansas.  Laura stepped up to the challenge this year and completed the course (206 miles this year) in 17 hours.  With 1000 riders lining up at the start she finished 288th and the 22nd female across the line.

On our trip to the Boston Marthon Laura was able to share the story of her 4-day bikepacking experience through the firetowers of Montana at three different bike shops along the way.





Ella and Cora took part in their dance recital this weekend.  They had fun and got to see both sets of grandparents in one weekend.
