Do you ever yearn for a simpler time? Are you touched by a sense of nostalgia when you think of the peace and quiet of small town U.S.A? When you ride across Missouri on the Katy Trail you have an opportunity to truly experience a colorful slice of Americana. From Machen to the east to Clinton on the western side of Missouri there are 237 miles of trail for you to explore. Each mile is different from the last.
I have been fortunate to ride back and forth across our beautiful diverse state several times. In truth, I will never be the same. I laughed and cried and shared dreams with my family. I rubbed sore muscles, rode out storms, and met wonderful people along the way.
Whether packing across the state or taking a short leisurely ride with small children, there is something here for everyone. Discover the Katy Trail and you will discover yourself. Over the next few weeks I will share a few of my experiences along the trail.
