Itís less than 9 miles from my house to the junction with the Katy Trail, so I ride it all year long. This time of year the trail surface is pretty dry and firm, so I even ride it on smooth tread 32s with no problem. I use an old steel frame road bike and a CX is about ideal.

FYI, from Jeff City, the portion upstream towards Rocheport and Boonville has several lovely sections where the trail runs right next to the river. Heading downstream towards Tebbetts and Mokane, the trail runs along Highway 94 for 27 miles before you get a section where it runs close to the river.

Either way, it is a great trail with good surfaces, plenty of shade and towns along the route with places that cater to cyclists.

Have fun. Who knows? I might pass you on the trail!

I work a lot in Jeff City but donít stay there in hotels much. I do know there is a very new Courtyard by Marriott just a couple blocks from the trailhead when you cross the river and reach town. Nice enough when Iíve been there for meetings.
