Ask about his bike shop’s name, and Ben Alexander offers up a history lesson.

Kansas, the state, was named after the Kansas River, which derived its name from the Kanza Indian tribe. Kanza translates to “people of the south wind.”

“Plus, it’s a key geographic feature here, where the wind blows out of the south at 20 mph 300 days out of the year,” Alexander joked.
