ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Hi Katy Trail bicyclers on the Oct. 3 trip - any musicians going on the trip? We play hammered dulcimer and Irish whistle and would bring instruments if it seems appropriate for night time jams with trip participants or people we meet along the way. Anyone else?

Hi: Getting excited to do my first bike trip (with RS) with two other gal-friends from the San Francisco South Bay area. This will be my third RS trip; they've all been wonderful. Looking forward to meeting fellow bikers this coming Saturday. Any hints from those familiar with the area as to how to pack for current weather?

Two weeks ago we had a total rain out on Wed and wore jackets in the mornings. It never got too hot., but temps were below normal. Crazy weather year to pack for anything. We had a great trip. I suspect you will too!

I signed up for the May trip yesterday. There was just one place left. My first Roads Scholar trip! I am renting a bike. Looking forward to it!

Lucky you! My first trip too and I can't wait.

Just signed up for June 6 ride. Recumbents available for rent? Otherwise, i was planning on bringing my own bike.

FYI - I had a good conversation with Pam in St. Charles, letting me know that the rental bikes have racks on the back to which you can attach a bag (with bungees) or panniers. Thanks Pam - over and above to hear from you.

Hi Doris, I see you are on the May trip, me too and I am getting super excited. I also talked to Pam and I agree, she is terrific.

Timothy Foley Mar 09, 2015 at 11:57 AM

I may bring my own bike at that cost.

Doris Miller Mar 09, 2015 at 11:31 AM

Hi Tim,
The information on the site indicates the rental is $100 (but you might double check) and that you have to provide your own bike helmet.

Timothy Foley Mar 09, 2015 at 11:10 AM

Does anyone know how much the bike rental fees are for the KATY Trail ride?
