2016 Lizard Under the Skillet

Mark your calendar for Sunday, July 3, 2016 for one of the most fun rides in the area!

Yes, July is hot! Kansas cyclists can take the heat. Can you?? What better way to beat the heat than to come out to Lawrence, Kansas and ride the Lizard Under the Skillet. There will be 30, 40 and 62 (metric century) mile options available to ride. All routes are on paved roads. For those cyclists who want an even hotter ride we will provide hot peppers, and an assortment of spicy Mexican fare. We’ll even provide space heaters and blankets for those of you who are afraid you might catch a chill at the SAGs.

For the sane cyclists (wimps), there will be the usual fruit, water and cookies at the SAGs.
