|We're off!!! (Drue, Peggy, Ardell)|
For those not familiar with the Katy Trail it is the longest rails-to-trails conversion in the U.S. and stretches from Machen, MO to Clinton, MO. More information can be found here (Katy Trails State Park). The section from St. Charles to Machen just opened recently and we did not ride that small portion. Our ride from Clinton to St. Charles, MO took six days and covered 225 miles!!! By bike:) The surface of the trail is crushed limestone.
|High point on the trail.|
|Headed down the trail (crushed limestone)|
|Mileage for the first day. Personal best.|
