I would like to bike ride the entire Katy Trail one-way. I have been debating the decision to reserve motel rooms in advance or just play it by ear. I would love to hear what others have done.

I just finished riding the Katy. Although I rode west to east I finished by riding east to west

even with my street bike with street tires.

ridable in April but you had to deal with a grass surface(...
