Tour Journals Volume 10: Katy Trail, Chapter 4

This chapter covers day four of my Katy Trail adventure across Missouri. It started in N. Jefferson, MO and continues to Hermann, MO. If you missed the other chapters, they’re at Pedalshift Projects 118, 119 and 121!

My day started with a nice surprise with a return hello from Mike and his son as they helped hook me up with some replacement gear left in Sedalia. Riding through a town called Portland portends some wet weather, and it all wraps up in a very German-influenced town having a German festival with a lot of Missouri sprinkled in.

Miles: 45
Mechanicals: 0
