As I rode into Hermann on the new bridge, which was very biker friendly, my rear tire went
bad with distorted ply cords. It was 7 at night and we planned an early morning departure
as we wanted to get to St Charles fairly early the next day. I checked into Harbor Haus and
asked the receptionist about bike shops. She called the Hermann Bike shop and he said
bring it over. He was closed, but he came down in stocking feet and changed my tire.
Everybody along the Katy trail proved to be genuinely wonderful. The food wasn't always
great as we were out there on Monday and some of the best places were closed. But the
people were friendly and our experience was great. We aren't young and strong but we
survived the ride and proved we could do it with the help of the locals. We appreciate
Missouri and the Katy trail people.
