As President of the Cow Town Cycling Team, I invite you to join us in Lawrence, Kansas March 23 & 24, 2013 for the God’s Country Fat Tire Festival.   Our team has two fun filled days of off-road excitement planned. 

Our festival...Saturday brings us the 11th Annual God’s Country Off-Road Duathlon.  For over a  decade this has been a fun and challenging multisport event for all ability levels.  This year we increase the fun opportunities by offering both Long and Short course options.  Age-Group, Clydesdale, Relay Teams and Unicycle divisions are available.  It’s a great event for first timers.
