Dates:  To ensure the best cycling experience possible, each Katy Trail bike tour has a maximum capacity of 12 participants per trip.  We still have availability the weeks of August 26-31;  September 16-22 and September 30-October 6.

Rates:  $1495 per person, double occupancy when registering prior to April 1; then $1695/person until August 1 or when the tour fills.   For individual participants desiring their own room, add a single supplement fee of $500.   

Check-in:  Our Katy trail bicycle tour participants will need to be at the tour check-in location no later than 1 PM on the tour start date.   Those driving will be able to park their cars for the week.  Those flying into Lambert-St. Louis airport (STL), contact us via email to discuss ground transportation options.

Preparation-for the rider.  The KATY trail is primarily a flat crushed limestone surface.  On day two, there will be some slight  grades.  While you don't need to be a star athlete to participate, you need to be a reasonably fit and regular bicycle rider to complete the tour without discomfort.  We recommend that you visit your doctor for a physical before participating.  For clothing, on our late summer/fall departures, we suggest standard cycling shorts and T-shirts or jerseys while riding.  For the mid-October date, you may want to consider bringing some cycling "tights" as there can be some quite cool mornings.   A weatherproof light cycling jacket is also suggested for the occasional rainy day.  Helmets are required.

Preparation-for your bicycle. If you bring your own bicycle, it needs to be of a style and in condition for riding six days on an unpaved surface.   There is no rugged terrain, so mountain bikes are not required.  Hybrid or fitness style bikes are best  for use on the KATY trail bike tour.  Please be sure to have your bike checked by a bicycle shop before you start, and bring a couple spare tubes to fit your tire size.

Rental bikes:  Rather not bring your bicycle?  Fitness-style bikes suitable for use on the Katy are available to rent for $100/week.
