Check-in:  Our Katy trail bicycle tour guests will need to be at the tour check-in location in St. Charles no later than noon 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 katy5487@gmail.com  to discuss preferred lodging and ground transportation options.

Preparation-for the rider.  The KATY is primarily a flat crushed limestone surface.  On day two, there will be some slight (less than 2%) grades.  While you don't need to be a star athlete to participate, you should be a reasonably fit and regular bicycle rider to complete the tour without discomfort.  We encourage you to visit your doctor for a physical before participating.  For clothing, we suggest standard padded cycling shorts and T-shirts or jerseys while riding.  For September dates, consider bringing some cycling "tights" as there can be some cool mornings.  A weatherproof light cycling jacket is also suggested for cool mornings or the occasional rainy day.  Evening casual wear is acceptable for dinners. Helmets are required.

Preparation-for your bicycle. If you bring your own bicycle, it needs to be of a style andin 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, have any worn parts like chains and especially TIRES replaced and bring a couple spare tubes to fit your tire size.

Rental bikes:  Rather not bring your bike?  "Fitness-style" bikes from Specialized or Cannondale suitable for use on the Katy are available to rent for $125/week.  They include water bottle cages, cycling computer/odometer, handlebar bag for storage.
