Sunflowers to Roses Bike Tour is held rain or shine - as we are a charity ride raising money in the fight against cancer no refunds are available.

S2R representatives will be on hand to answer any fundraising questions you may have. We'll also have S2R merchandise on sale.
After the ride the party kicks into high gear from 10am to 2pm
You won't want to miss the entertainment after your ride! The Sunflowers to Roses Bike Tour will host a post ride party at Erik's Bike and Board from 10am to 2pm after the ride.

Gravel riders should also watch this short video which will help you become familiar with the route and some of the turns and railroad crossings. The video picks up in Heritage Park where the S2R gravel riders will turn left and head south while the S2R road riders continue straight west towards the Heritage Park dog park. The video stops short at 159th and Pflumn. As the S2R Gravel riders cross 159th Street keeping heading straight (north) on Pflumn. Riders will continue north on Pflumm to West 133rd St. At West 133rd St. the gravel riders turn right and head east going back to Erik‘s Bike Shop at West 133rd St. & Quivira for the post-ride party.
