Rode in the Pedlar's Jamboree again this year.

Like the bike route used for this ride but dissatisfied with the music this year - too hard rock for our tastes. Would rather have bluegrass or country rock.

We recently rode the Katy trail for 200 miles from Sedalia to St. Charles. We parked and left our car at the Sedalia trailhead, biked to St. Charles, and then took the train back to Sedalia (the train station is about half a mile from the trailhead). If you take the train make sure you make a reservation for your... More

The Katy Trail is a Missouri State Park which is approximately 240 miles of bicycle/hiking/walking path from St. Charles to Clinton, Missouri. The trail is primarily composed of 'chat' or crushed limestone and runs along the Missouri River and part of the Lewis and Clark Trail. It is mostly flat with Depots along the way for stops, tracking where you... More

This is a great place to bike. If you enjoy a leisurely ride on a wooded trail with plenty of room to pass this is it.

Folks, this is a one-of-a-kind gem. The trail goes between wonderfully charming small towns and is shaded most of the way. People of all ages and abilities can enjoy this trail since there are virtually no dangers of getting hurt or stressed out (thanks to being completely away from cars and traffic). The trail is so flat, anyone can ride... More

We rode the Katy Trail with over 300 other cyclists. It's a great trail, well-maintained and very wide. The grades are never very steep and the scenery at times is just awesome. I highly recommend this for any serious cyclist who likes to tour on bike.

A great ride put on every year by the Missouri Dept of Natural Resources/State Parks. The ride is well organized and always a good time. The trail is well kept and scenic with nice trail heads throughout. If you like biking rail trails I would definitely recommend this one.

We are most familiar with the trail in Columbia, MO and in Rocheport, MO. However, it crosses most of the state of Missouri. It is a great bike trail or walking trail. In Rocheport, it follows along the Missouri River. It is often shaded by the river bluffs and cooled by the breeze coming across the water. There are walking... More
