What started out 6 years ago as a few friends getting together for an annual road ride has grown to a great annual cycling tour of Leavenworth, Jefferson, and Atchison Counties in Northeast Kansas. The Leavenworth Bicycle Club is proudly sponsoring and supporting the 6th edition of the Leavenworth Metric Century. This year The Suburban Restaraunt will be sponsoring our ride. The Garden will be open for us upon our return and they will be serving food!
