Catch the Katy - DNR Ride 2006


Is there any provision for laundry services? I'll probably stay in motels along the way.

Will there be any "beerless" nights?

Thanks, JEM

I don't know the answer to your question, but I'm also from Houston. When are you riding the Trail? I plan on riding around the middle of June. Did you ride the MS? DG

I plan to do the DNR Ride 6/19 thru 6/23. I rode St. Charles to Boonville in 10/04. I didn't do the BP MS150 this year, I decided after last year that there are just too many riders on the road. This year my wife and I were just volunteers; but, had just as much fun.

This year I want to do the whole Katy trail, and doing an organized ride is the only practical way for me to do it (if I can have clean clothes and beer).

Hope to see you there.

I'll be on the trail at the same time. Except I'll be going West to East. Have fun. DG

Jack, Most folks bring enough clothes for the week. Your best bet on finding a laundry mat would be Jefferson City (Tuesday) or Sedalia (Thursday).

BEER!
Sunday: Trailhead brewery, St Charles.
Monday: A concession stand that sells beer at the ball park were we usaully camp may be open, otherwise their is a bar and a convenience store very close.
Tuesday: On the route, there are bars in Steedman, Mokane, & Tebbetts. C-stores and bars in Jefferson City.
Wednesday: On the route, there is Cooper's Landing at Easly, Lucy's at McBaine and Katfish Katy's at Huntsdale. I'm not sure if there is a bar in Rocheport, but I think the A-frame at the winery sells beer.
Thursday: On the route, bar and C-store in Pilot Grove, but that may be a little early still. Sedalia has bars and C-stores.
Friday: Windsor has a bar and C-store. So does Clinton.

Please remember that the state parks ride is a very family friendly event. If you bring beer to camp, be descrete and observe 'quiet hours'. If we are camped on school grounds or a park that does not allow beer, go to the bar. My friends and I have never had a problem.
