BOURBON COUNTY, Kans. — There’s a new cycling initiative that’s introducing more scenic routes throughout the state of Kansas.

Gravel Kansas was started with the objective of connecting people to places — and enhance the experience for cycling tourists. Kansas tourism is funding it.

The state is is home to more than 98,000 miles of gravel — which organizers say makes it ideal for cyclists. Bourbon County has identified a route being dubbed, “Bourbon On the Rocks.”

“Each route starts and ends as a loop in or right around Fort Scott. They are, each one has a story to tell such as something historic to see,” said Jackson Tough, Fort Scott Tourism Director.
