On a recent bike trip to the area, we drove (yes, drove) up to the Winery on the bluffs. We spent a wonderful evening in the A-Frame with wine, a sandwich for my friend Brian, and a Picnic of bread, cheese, salami, and an apple for both of us.

We were hoping for a sunset, but it was still too overcast. However we got to enjoy a visit from a very forward racoon begging table scraps. I don't know how busy the A-Frame is normally. We heard that during the school year, it is often crowded with kids from the college in Columbia. But this overcast evening, it was wonderfully un-crowded, and very relaxing and enjoyable.

NOT OPEN ON MONDAY'S. Rode from Katfish Katy's to Winery hoping for an enjoyable evening experience. Entry from the trail is hidden, almost missed it. Walked up the .3 hill only to find the place desolate. SO disappointed. Rode back to campsite and drove into Columbia for meal. Not the Katy experience we had hoped. Other vacationers (holiday week) also expressed frustration.

It's too bad you ran into so many places closed on Mondays. I would think that hours of operation would be listed on this site to help you plan your trip.

For many of us that frequent the Katy, its kind of a given that Mondays and/or Tuesdays are the "off" days.....gotta rest sometimes. We most often travel self suppported making bike shops, eats, etc. nonissue.

Since Ray is running this site out of the goodness of his heart, I don't expect anything from him. However, at http://www.bikekatytrail.com/site.aspx?sid=162
you'll find the following information about Les Bourgeois Winery & Bistro
Hours: Bistro: Tue-Sat 11AM-9PM; Sun 11AM-3PM
Winery: Daily 11AM-6PM
Which doesn't precisely match the information on the proprietor's website, http://www.missouriwine.com/, to which this website links.

Actually Nails I appreciate anyone letting me know when you find a discrepancy in the hours listed for trail businesses. It's important for people to feel like they can rely on the information listed here. Some of the businesses do change their hours from time to time, so again please let me know whenever you come across any errors.

I have updated the Les Bourgois listing to have the new hours for the A-frame/winery of noon through sunset.

Thanks again for pointing this out.
