Kandango 2018

This year’s Kandango features two rides. The 6th annual K2r (pronounced K Tour) is our classic road ride through the Flint Hills. The Kandango G2 Gravel Grinder (pronounced G squared) takes the dirt roads less traveled.

Both rides come together at the designated meeting towns, for fun, food and entertainment.

All three nights feature fun-filled festivities.

Sign up before December 31 and receive a $20 discount. After January 1, registration fees increase to $115.
