We want to drop our car in St Charles and get somehow back to Clinton to begin our bike trip. Enterprise doesn’t allow one way rentals there and UHaul is $400. Any other ideas? It would be on a Saturday. Also recommendation on where to leave car and where to stay in Clinton?

Recommend Country Inn & Suites. Might be able to leave car in their parking garage during your trip. I also recommend the Bike Stop Cafe for transportation needs.

When I rode the trail last May, I stayed a night at the Best Western near the trail in St. Charles. They let me leave my truck there while I was on the trail. for approximately 11 days. I just needed to sign a waiver and leave the truck in a far part of the parking lot. I had a reservation for my return night, but I got in a day or so earlier and canceled the final night's stay. Weekends may be hard to get reservations because of the nearby casino, but middle of the week reservations are easy to make.
