Yesterday was our last day in Kansas and we are now in Missouri. During the last 3 days of bicycling we have left the Trans Am Trail and followed roads that leads us to a trail called the Katy Trail. Several people that we have met on our biketour have recommended this trail, wich is a bikepath built on an old railroad. We decided to find and follow this trail, partly to avoid the Ozarks but mostly because it supposed to be very nice to ride. A bikepath with no cars, that will be a relieve for a couple of days!
High temperature and humidity have been demanding, but never a problem last days in Kansas. As long as we roll it’s fine. It was a bit of a pain though to mend a puncture under the scorching sun in 95 degree heat.
Tomorrow we will start cycling on the Trail. We dont have any maps but we think this is a well developt trail and this will be solved as we go along. We now do look forward to at least 4 days of easy gliding on our bikes.
