Day One

Cycling Day: 42 miles- Jefferson City to Hermann – Meet the shuttle van at St. Charles near the eastern end of the Katy Trail. Overnight parking is available at the KATY parking lot and is free for your entire ride. The St. Charles trailhead is a 20-minute drive or taxi/uber from St. Louis Airport (STL). The shuttle will pick you and your bike up and drive directly to the KATY Trailhead in Jefferson City (2.5- 3 hours). Ride east along farm lands into Hermann where you will cross the Missouri River on a safe bike bridge. The winery town of Herman has much to offer including Wineries, Breweries, Distilleries, restaurants and antique shops.



Day Two

Cycling Day: 39 miles- Hermann to Augusta – Today’s destination is Augusta, another small winery town with 257 population. But don’t let the small town full you, it has 5 wineries, antique shops, glass studio and a wood shop awaiting you in this scenic town.



Day Three

Cycling Day: 27 miles-Augusta to St. Charles – This is your final day of cycling. Leave the B&B in Augusta and ride east on the trail to St. Charles where you have left your car at the trailhead in St. Charles. But before you get to St. Charles, you need to stop in Defiance, just 7 miles from Augusta to see the squirrel bar or other unique bars in this town. When you arrive in St. Charles you are steps away from the old St. Charles with 1800’s homes and shops on Main Street and you can visit Missouri’s first capitol and the Katy Trail Museum.
