If you happen to notice a cadre of slow pedaling cyclists struggling along the roads in Prairie Village and Fairway on Saturday, their chamois and jerseys stained with maroon, don’t freak out. There hasn’t been a massive cycling disaster or anything.
These are just the brave soldiers participating in this year’s Tour de BBQ, a “race” around the Kansas City area with pit stops at Oklahoma Joe’s, Gates, Smokestack, RJ’s Bob-be-que Shack, and others.
You’re most likely to see them traveling along Belinder Road around these parts. Just a friendly reminder to share the road. And also to share the barbecue.
