First warm weekend in months. I needed to get out and explore. This ride is just 30-40 miles from Ponca City, my home area. I jumped in on the route at strother field on 20, and much to my surprise came upon the Wheat State winery. Now I don't condone drinking and driving, but I could not stop my self from stopping in for a few tastings. Bought two bottles to take home and I was on my way. From the Winery to Dexter and down to 166 was enjoyable as it was a good mix of straight aways, hills, and curves. Found it interesting that I had to dodge a few Armadillo's, live ones. My only complaint is that it was too short, I was left wanting more.

This road is alright. There's no posted speed limit and no amenities other than the start of this ride. The road is narrow, and as others have pointed out, it's been patched often. None of the patches were jarring, and I was surprised at how smooth the road was, but the chance of oncoming traffic kept me from really pushing my luck. Everybody along this road seemingly has a gravel drive, and so gravel is EVERYWHERE, and it blends into the road. That means that rather than being able to just gun it and trust the tires, I wound up holding back as a "just in case". Honestly, it really is a fun ride, and not a bad way to kill some time if you're in the area.

This is a pretty decent ride for Kansas. Watch out for freshly patched road as the county uses an oil/gravel mix that can be hazardous.
