Lizard Under the Skillet

Hot?  It was so hot I watched a lizard crawl into the campfire just to get in the shade of the skillet.

Yes, July is hot!  What better way to beat the heat than to come out to Lawrence, Kansas, on Sunday, July 2, 2017, and ride the Lizard Under the Skillet.  30, 40, and 62 (metric century) mile options available to ride.  All routes are on paved roads.
