The Palens invite you to join us on the farm for Cruise the Blues 2017! We will again host a friendly, but challenging, 5-hour mountain biking event for all ages. Cruise the Blues is designed to challenge the best riders in the region and promote mountain biking for the entire family. Come enjoy miles of beautiful private trails in the Blue Hills of Kansas!
Here on the official website, you can find all the information you need for registration, location, schedule, and rules.
Enjoy free camping under the big Oaks Friday and Saturday. Parking and camping is free! We have primitive hot showers, washing stations, changing areas, and bathroom facilities. RVs welcome!
Friday night get settled in and check out the coarse during the open ride!
Saturday morning enjoy a walk, run, or ride on the trails before the offficial race starts. And don’t forget those last minute walk-in registrations!
Be sure to stick around Saturday evening for Cruiz’n Kids, awards, raffle winners, a hot meal hosted by students of Tipton Catholic High School, live music, bike games and more!
Sunday morning offers another opportunity to enjoy a leisurely ride around the trails. They are open until noon!
Please remember all riders must wear helmets at all times when riding their bikes.
We welcome pets! We ask that they remain leashed, properly supervised while their people are on the trail, and that their “deposits” are cleaned up. Thank you for being respectful with your furry friends!
We look forward to seeing you on the farm!
