Backroads Touring – Kansas

Backroads Touring - KansasHere’s a link to a great little site that’s rather similar to the idea behind DirtBum, except they’re focused on motorcycle touring on the backroads of Kansas, rather than bicycle touring.

The name of the site is Backroads Touring – Kansas, and the screenshot from the site should give you a pretty good idea of what they’re about. Here’s how they describe themselves:

We visit places rarely seen by motorists. There are over 100,000 miles of secondary and unpaved roads throughout Kansas, and many run through pristine ranch and hill country. These are the roads and places we will explore and chronicle on this site. It is not unusual to ride fifty miles or more without encountering a single motorist, and the solitude permits us many opportunities to stop and enjoy some impressive views.

The site has an extensive gallery of ride reports and photos, and you can literally spend hours just browsing through their history of rides. Amazing stuff.

I enjoy riding bicycles all over -- city streets, suburbia, rural roads, gravel roads, dirt roads, rail-trails, and singletrack. I love exploring the countryside and finding the interesting and historical treasures hidden in plain sight. You can follow my rides on Strava.


  1. I’d love to get a touring motorcycle. Especially with gas prices on the rise recently. And you could go to places that are hard to get to on a bicycle. I like the BMW touring bikes, but they are a bit pricey.
