  • RTE to Lambert's in Springfield MO next spring

    I posted this on the "other" forum, and I thought I'd give members over here a chance too. I was thinking about doing a day-long RTE from eastern KS to Springfield MO to eat lunch at Lambert's Cafe next spring. Is there anyone interested in going or even planning it? I've only been there a couple of times, but the food is good even though the lines are long. From Manhattan, it would be about a 600 mile day, which might be a little long for some, but I thought it would be fun. Any interest?

    Depends on the date, if I'm free it sounds like a good ride. I would be coming from just east of KCMO.

        There is one in the Springfield area too.
        I went to the original Lamberts when it was just a hole in the wall diner with a lunatic that threw rolls at you!

        The wife and I were on our way home on the bike a few years back and saw the sign for the new place as we approached Springfield. We figured, why not? They still have good food, but way too crowded and long waits to get a table.
        Too touristy for my tastes, but everyone should go at least once.

          Great. When the time gets closer I'll propose some options for a time that might work.

            I would be interested. I have been there a couple of times (Springfield) and have been wanting to ride there. I am in the Kansas City metro area. The ride to Springfield is easy from here...don't know about the ride back with a Lamberts belly...

              Looks like it will be a popular ride. I'm in K.C. area. Never been to Lamberts but would be very hungry by the time I get there.

                Let's gather at Lamberts in Ozark, MO at 1:00 PM.

                As a first cut on a route, I think I will go from Manhattan to Council Grove, then East to Harrisonville, MO, over to Clinton, MO and south from there. It is certainly not the fastest route, but it will avoid a lot of the 4 lane roads. It looks like both Ottawa, KS and Harrisonville, MO could be natural gathering points if any would like to join up there.

                  Did I miss a date when this is going to occur?

                  No, you did not miss it. I just did not include it. I have set the date for Saturday, April 25th.

                        Great. I'm not sure how many will be there. Tim Berger and I are meeting down by Wichita and heading over. He is the only other person that is confirmed at this time.

                          I will evaluate the weather situation on Saturday morning before deciding for sure. Right now, the weather forecast calls for storms on Saturday from KC down south to Springfield.
