TOPEKA — The Kansas Dept. of Transportation has designated 487 miles of state highway as part of the U.S. Bicycle Route 76, which follows the existing Trans-America Trail as it crosses southern Kansas.  Kansas is the fifth state to designate roads for the national bike route.  KDOT said there are more than 2,000 miles of the route completed between Virginia and Kansas.  The Kansas segment connects with Missouri’s recently designated part entering Kansas near Girard. The newly designated route follows K-146, U.S. 54, K-19 and K-96  crossing the Colorado line near Tribune.  The route passes along many scenic and educational locations such as the Flint Hills, the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center in Hutchison, and the Quivira National Wildlife Refuge near Hudson, KDOT said.
