Daily Review: June 22

On the first long journey of the week, riders on the 2011 Katy Trail traveled almost 50 miles in one day. Making their way from Boonville to the state capital of Jefferson City, riders had plenty of scenic and eclectic stops along the way. The town of Rocheport, Mo was home to the first business built around the trail and held close proximity to the state’s largest oak tree and Eagle Bluffs overlook.

This particular group of riders were also the first to cross the new bike lane spanning the Missouri River. Campers were able to meet Mrs. Jones whose family was responsible for purchasing the Katy Trail and making it available for bike enthusiasts everywhere.
