Youth Bicyle Travel / Boy Scouts on Katy Trail
« on: April 17, 2007, 10:32:32 pm »
TraderJohn,
The Katy Trail is perfect for your Boy Scout Troop.

I coordinate a middle school bicycle club at Compton Drew Middle School in the city of St.Louis.
For the past 5 years, we have a 3day/2night bicycle trip on the Katy Trail from St Charles (eastern) to Jefferson City (middle). The distance is 110 miles and we bike 65 to Herman, then 45 to Jefferson City.
Our first year, we had the fewest participants (17) and one year we had 42. We average 32 on the trip.
In Herman, we stayed at an abandon school the city owned, and in Jeff we stayed in a hotel.

Your troop should not have a problem with this trip, if they are in physical condition. Check out Brett Dufer's Katy Trail Guidebook for all the info you may need. Also, I would be glad to help.

I have biked the Sedalia to St Charles (west-east) portion, about 190 miles staying at B&B's.
