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 to discuss preferred lodging and  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 encourage you to 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 May and late September dates, 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, 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 bicycle?  Fitness-style bikes from GIANT or Cannondale suitable for use on the Katy are available to rent for $100/week.  They include water bottle cages, cycling computer/odometer, handlebar bag for storage.
