This 40-plus-mile loop begins at Iola’s Riverside Park, rolls through town, then east on Nebraska Road, south on 2600, east on Hawaii, south on 3000th, then back west on Delaware, through Humboldt, across the Neosho River, north on 600th, and back into Iola on the wide shoulder of US-54.

Can be ridden clockwise (as shown) or counter-clockwise.

Actually, the route is not so hard. Or it could be tough, depending on the wind. A few “bumps”, but no major hills.

Attractions include the former Zillah Rural School at 2200th and Delaware, the Monarch Cement Company in Humboldt, George A. Sweatt Park, dedicated to the memory of Negro League Baseball legend George Sweatt, beautiful downtown Humboldt, the historic rainbow arch bridge over the Neosho River, Humboldt’s Riverside Park, and Iola’s Riverfront Fishing Area (both great places to watch the river roll).
