re-sized MB festival

Mountain bike fest at Tipton, Kansas

The fifth annual “Cruise the Blues” mountain bike festival is Aug. 30.

The biking event, hosted by Palen Family Farms east of Tipton, is not just for performance racers, but the entire family.

A free children’s race is at 5 p.m. A hog roast and entertainment by Jimmy Lewin and the Kingtones will round out the day’s festivities.

Registration for racers before Aug. 18 is $50 a person or $90 for a two-person team, and $60 and $110 after Aug. 18. Registration for the joy ride is $30 a person or $50 for a two-person team before Aug. 18, and $40 and $70 after.

OK so this YouTube from Valginex may not be Tipton but it is certainly worth watching – respect guys.

I understand this is not the only news emmanating from Kansas at the moment – I may just visit this rather ‘bare’ subject tomorrow!
