Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Great Trip on the Katy

Tim & I just spent a wonderful week biking the Katy from Clinton
to Hermann and back, 300 miles total. The trail conditions were
perfect on 98 percent of the trail, and even the small amount of
rainy conditions we biked through did not harm the trail. We used
our 20 year old road bikes with 27 x 1 3/8" hybrid tires. We
stayed in B&B's and traveled light, no trailers. We had one
broken spoke (old bike) and the cycle shop in downtown Sedalia
(across from the Hotel Brothwell) fixed it up very quickly for us.
We would like to thank Missouri for the fun trail, and thank the
following B&B's for their great accomodations: The Globe Hotel
in Hartsburg, Doug Rendelman B&B in Bluffton, Rivercene in
New Franklin, Hotel Brothwell in Sedalia, Pilot Grove B&B,
Schoolhouse B&B in Rocheport, and Cruse's Cabooses in
Windsor. Cruce's Cabooses was fun, just 1 1/2 miles off the trail
on a gravel road (we had to walk the bikes part of the way) but
the cabooses were very nice and we enjoyed the breakfast that
was left for us in the small kitchen in the caboose. The campfire
was nice in the evening.
Our favorite dining experience was Katy's Roundhouse in New
Franklin, and the Beaugolais winery near Rocheport was great
for a picinic. We had a great week and hope to return sometime
for the Hermann to St. Charles ride. Thanks to all, Karen & Tim

Glad that you had a great time, Karen! That is high praise coming from someone in Wisconsin! I spent four days in Elroy last July riding the trails there before going on to SAGBRAW. Elroy was wonderful, and I will go back again someday.
