Was planning to ride the first half of this year's MO Double Cross starting in Clinton on August 29. Got word that it has been canceled. Was planning to shuttle back to car and drive to Columbia on the September 3rd for Ped Jam. Anybody else out there that was planning to do Double Cross? Interested in still making the ride? Got some ideas how to make it happen. Based on what I've read below, might be better to start in Defiance and ride west since Boonville to Rocheport isn't looking so good.

I wasn't aware of these events and want to schedule my out and back Katy Trail ride to avoid any mass events on the trail if possible. I'm looking at starting Sept 7 or 8 and taking around 6-7 days to do it. Are there any trail events that I should be aware of? Are thorns an issue on the Katy? I do the Cowboy Trail every year and they are usually really numerous. Thanks for any info!
