6th Annual Rock n Roll to Roots

What could be better than a ride through our beautiful community and countryside, then enjoy good food and a whole day of great live music in historic Paola Square? Welcome back to Rock & Roll to Roots 2015!

This year, all proceeds will again benefit Paola Pathways. The Pathways is a group of volunteers that are planning trails, bike lanes and new sidewalks for the Paola area. Thanks to MiCo Velo members and other individuals and organizations, over 3 miles of trail were constructed in Wallace Park and will be used on our 10 mile fun ride. Construction has started on the proposed Lake Miola trails as well. More information can be found at http://www.paolapathways.org/.

Location

We will once again start and finish this ride in Wallace Park, located about 6 blocks south of the Paola Square. Entrances to the park are on Osage and Silver streets. Please visit our Facebook page for any updates or details.

Paola Pathways

Paola Pathways is a trail system being developed by a diverse community taskforce and approved by the Paola City Council.  The system links key locations throughout the city - especially schools, parks, and recreational facilities. The family-friendly, non-motorized, multi-use trails consist of a variety of surfaces and distances designed for walkers, runners, and bicyclists. All of this is being created with private funds, grants and the manpower of the city of Paola. The newest trails are located at Lake Miola.

What to Bring:

  • Helmets required
  • Lawn Chairs if staying for Roots Festival and drink of choice.
  • Well tuned bike – and rider
  • Basic tools in case of mechanical issues or flats, spare tube, patches, etc.
  • Water bottle(s) – we will have filling stations but last year was hot

After the Ride - What is the Roots Festival?

The Paola Roots Festival is in its 25th year. Each year, this 2-day festival in the beautiful Paola Park Square attracts close to 9000 people of all ages! Besides the great live music, other festival attractions included ethnic dancers, arts and crafts, food vendors and a State Championship BBQ cook-off. For the younger festival goers, great games, fun rides and a sidewalk chalk contest keep them entertained all day.  Festival goers may bring a cooler with drinks of choice (no glass) and  lawn chairs as no seating is provided. Premium space fills up fast, so place lawn chairs in advance for the shows. More information and this year’s music lineup can be found here.
