Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Peddler's Jamboree

I have subscribed to this forum for about a year now and have enjoyed reading all of the comments daily. We just started biking last spring and were planning a trip on the KT this year. After a few months of biking, we were up to 10 miles on a daily basis and 20 miles on a Saturday or Sunday. We were talking about a short 2 day trip at first with a stop at a local B&B. Yesterday, a friend of ours asked us to attend the Peddler's Jamboree with them in May. I do not recall anyone talking about this last year. I saw a little information from last year's ride on a website, but I was not sure how easy it was to get a room at a B&B in Boonville during this time. We also saw that there is a Comfort Inn, but it is 1 mile away from the trail. Has anyone here participated in this? Any advice for a first-timer?

Last year was the first year for the ride. I did not participate but from what I have gathered it is designed as a bike and camp event with SAG support provided at a reasonable price. If you decide camping is not for you, you could check B&B/hotel availability near the Boonville park area once the dates are known for this years event. Camping looks like it would provide the best experience though since you would be camping where the music event happens in the evening.

I have a bed and breakfast in Boonville called the Garden Gate Bed and Breakfast. I am 5 blocks from the trail head. My website is gardengatebedandbreakfastmo.com if you would like to take a look. Enjoy your ride! Penny Garibaldi, Boonville

You can stay at the Hotel Frederick, which is one of the sponsors for this ride. Located at the south end of the Boonslick Bridge it is a beautifully restored historic hotel. Walking distance to any of the events that are planned for the Peddler's. Check out the web-site at hotelfrederick.com.
