Katy Trail: Day 1

Clinton. 6:30 am, 69 degrees. Time to ride.
Donna found a wallet alongside the road.
The beginning of the Katy Trail.We found a phone number in the wallet and called. Ted drove to the next town on the trail to meet us and pick up his wife’s wallet.Today’s ride was uphill for portions (7mph) then downhill (13mph). I thought this “High Point 955 feet” would be good news since the temperatures were climbing and tree cover was more sparse, but no. The ups and downs continued. Look. The perfect Topeak panniers were available in small town Sedalia. The owner, Jason, also fixed an annoying rattle on Donna’s bike.A beer at Fitter’s was next on the list.Third was a nice shower at Hotel Bothwell. Miles = 41. I’ll sleep good tonight.
