Re: Ham planning Katy Trail across-MO bicycle trip


HI Scott,

I'm assuming you've done the rails-to-trails riding before.  KATY is crushed gravel, so prepare for the associated dust & drive train wear.  There are some good breweries and wineries along the route (a hike up to Montel might be worth it, depending upon how heavy all your gear is -- they have a lovely large deck with a scenic view of the surrounding area.  Wine, too!). is a pretty good website for info, as are others (plenty of info on the web for the KATY).

Enjoy your ride, let us know how it goes -- no 40m gear?
