Did You Know...The High Point of Kansas Has a Sunflower Made With a Bicycle Chain?

Who would have known there are such special places in the U.S. full of bike love - and a high point at that!

My husband and son are vacationing in several states; their primary goal is climbing summits and exploring along the way. My favorite by far is Kansas's amalgam of summit paraphernalia and my family's experiences with horned toads. If you want to see what's in the mailbox in the above photo, follow their vacation blog.


  1. I have driven through Kansas a handful of times and always marvel at its flatness. I can't help but giggle a bit at this high point in the state. Ask the guys to wave to Colorado on their trip (I promise to wave back). Hope they're enjoying their time away and all the sights along the way.

  2. Living here in Kansas and I didn't know that. I've never been there. Sounds like a neat trip.

  3. I have never been to Kansas. (The closest I've been is Colorado.)

    In looking at those photos, I think of that famous image of the Tour de France peloton speeding through sunflower fields. Can you imagine if all of those sunflowers were made of bike parts?
