Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
MCI to KATY


We plan to ride the KATY trail in early Sept. Will rent bikes at trail Flying to KC airport (MCI). Only way I can find to the trail is to take buses to KC and Amtrak to Sedalia. Any other suggestions?

This question has come up before, as you might expect. I searched the database and found the following Forum discussions containing a mention of the KC airport:

How many riders in your group? Let me know, and how much gear are you bringing? I can pick you up at KCI and take you to Clinton or Sedalia to start. I'm just a KATY trail veteran who wants to help others enjoy the experience.

We are two Medicare recipients. Plan to fly into MCI and out of STL. Will have only our panniers, since we are renting and picking up bikes in Sedalia (unless I buy a folding bike by then).
It looks like it is doable by bus & train, although it takes 3.5 to 4.5 hrs.

What is your plan to get the rental bikes back to Sedalia?

We are renting from Katy Bike Rental (katybikerental.com). Got their name from the bike shop in Defiance. Pick up in Sedalia and return in St Charles at a very reasonable price. It changes everything.
