The Ride Around Kansas is roughly 1,200 miles.  You must ride your motorcycle around Kansas and collect dated business receipts from 6 cities.

Read the rules for the iconic SaddleSore 1000 on the Ironbutt Association site.  The rules for this ride are similar and you will get valuable background information.

Documentation:  See here.

DBR - Dated Business Receipt

A DBR is a machine generated receipt with the date, time and LOCATION on it.  Check it - do not assume it is correct.  A receipt with an incorrect time/date/location is worthless.  Check and re-check.

Fees:  $40


The ride must be completed in less than 24 hours.

You may start at any required city.  You must start and end the ride at the same location, i.e. same DBR.

You may not leave Kansas- except for safety reasons and if you leave you MUST re-enter Kansas at the same point  you left it. 


You must obtain DBR every 350 miles or less AND in the following jurisdictions and the receipt MUST indicate the city, date and time.  Check your receipts.

    Bird City
    Baxter Springs
    Medicine Lodge

You must obtain the receipts in the order listed.  Either order (clock or counter-clock) is fine but they must be in order,  e.g. Troy MUST come immediately before or after Bird City.

You may take any route you like - but remember you may not leave Kansas (except for an emergency) and the required DBRs must be acquired in order.  If you do leave the state, you must return to the point where you crossed he border and continue your ride from there.

Your official time is determined by the starting and ending receipts.  PLEASE check these documents and make sure the clock and date are correct!
