If you are flying, you fly in and out of the St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL), depart no earlier than 5:00pm. We will arrange for your hotel on Sunday, prior to the start of the tour. You will be charged for this extra night stay.
If you are driving, meet us at our hotel at 8:00am, the ride will begin at 9:00am. You can leave your car at the hotel for free parking for the entire ride. We will check into the hotel at the conclusion of our first day’s ride.
The MCT trails are mainly smooth blacktop with an occasional crushed limestone section. We travel on rails-to-trails paths for most of the rides but might have to use the road to meet another trail. We are riding 23-44 miles per day for 5 days in a row. The length of the ride and endurance make this demanding however we stop to view the beautiful scenery so the riding is not rigorous. Since this is a Rails-to-Trails ride, there are no steep hills to climb, but the longer miles will appeal to stronger, more experienced riders
