My husband and I just completed a 200 mile trip in France, the Loire Valley area and love it. We are now looking for a place closer to home. We found the Katy trail on the web. My question is: Let's say we would arrive in St. Louis and head out to do the Whole Katy trail in about a week, just one way. How do we get back to our car? I know we could bike back there but we only wanted to go one way. Is there a shuttle service that could take us back to our car? I see that some B&B's have suttle service, is that what it means? They will take you back to your car. We will be riding in middle Sept. or Early Oct. Any comments or suggestions would be great.

Louise, You can find contact information for shuttle services in the towns and services section under the map at the top of the page. I have not stayed at any of the B&B's, but based on what others have posted here, I think most of the B&B shuttles are for their immediate area; for instance if you are staying in a B&B in McKittrick, they will shuttle you to Hermann and back if you do not wish to ride across the the state highway bridge that is quite narrow with no shoulder. Amtrak is another option that has been discussed at length in the comment forum. I know you wrote Sept. or early Oct., but if June would work for you, then the MO State Parks Katy Trail ride is another option: http://www.mostateparks.com/katytrail/2006ride.htm
