On Thursday, June 13, Clay Center welcomed Biking Across Kansas (BAK). Celebrating its 45th year, BAK is an annual ride for cyclists starting at the Colorado border and ending just over 500 miles later in Atchison. There were more than 800 riders and an additional 150 support volunteers participating in the 2019 ride.
We were lucky to have several members of their group stop by Clay Center Presbyterian Manor for a snack, to visit with our residents and even provide a bit of entertainment. A group of very talented cyclists who call themselves the "spokesmen" gave us a treat by performing their barbershop style music.
