Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
mosquitoes are horrible

Katy Trail riders: The mosquitoes in the stretch from Rocheport to McBaine are HORRIBLE! I ran across a girl about two miles out of Rocheport pushing her bike b/c she had a flat back tire. The mosquitoes were PUNISHING her. Her shoulders and arms were covered in welts and the skeeters were just swarming. Unfortunately, I didn't have a tire repair kit but I told her to get on her bike and get moving, flat and all. Bring insect repellant in addition to sunscreen. These suckers aren't little, either. They hit you like BBs. Trail is in perfect condition for riding, though! Don't let my comments keep you off the KT.

Did you offer her the use of your bug spray?

Nope, I don't pack bug spray with me.
