Hays is one of 13 communities participating in a three-state bike tour commemorating the life of Ted Jones, who was instrumental in opening Edward Jones' first branch office.

The 13-stage tour, beginning Sunday in Colorado Springs and concluding Oct. 6 in St. Louis, is named Tour de Ted: Ride the Wire.

The tour will be in Hays on Wednesday.

Tour de Ted will begin in Liberal, KS at 10:00am on Sept. 24.

The route traces the path of a telegraph wire that stretched from Colorado to St. Louis in the early days of the firm, which was established in 1922. The event will help raise funds for cancer research.
