Katy Trail ride this weekend (24/25 June)?

At least 3 of us had mentioned in an earlier thread trying to get together for a ride on the Katy Trail.
This weekend is mid 80's and mostly sunny, who's available?
RetroGrouch and KenSmith pick a starting point in St. Charles County.

Can't go this weekend but do plan on riding the trail. Katy trail is by two hour from home and would like to know if your from the area, camping around the trail. We pull a 5th wheel and would like to use the trailer as home base to ride.

We also will ride Tunnel Hill this summer, hopefully more than once.

Rode the Great River Road liked it!

Hope you have a good turnout! See-Ya

There's an RV park in St. Charles that's right up against the KATY.

This Saturday isn't good for me. I have to be a pack mule to help my wife set up for a bridal shower. You can trust me on this however, I'd much rather ride.

Sorry guys, leaving for Florida early in the morning. I've been tasked with sitting on the beach re-enacting a Corona commercial.

someone's gotta do it....

I was planning a full ride beginning next week. We were coming up from Texas and my wife was going to be my evening support. However, I'm going to have to fix a rotator cuff that is killing me so as of this week we cancelled reservations. Next Thursday I will be having surgery as opposed to pushing off from Clinton.

Maybe next year. I also want to ride the C&O sometime.
