Total Eclipse of the Katy Bicycle Ride

Experience the first total solar eclipse viewable in Missouri in nearly 150 years on a special Katy Trail bicycle ride. Because Katy Trail State Park is located in the “path of totality” of this historic eclipse, it will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to follow the “Total Eclipse of the Katy” and experience “Darkness during Daylight.” 

The 36-mile ride will be from Rocheport to Jefferson City and is limited to 500 people. A  $50 registration fee includes an eclipse Katy Trail t-shirt, water bottle, SAG support, special eclipse glasses and staff to provide information about the eclipse and how to  safely view it.

An optional return shuttle for $25 will haul riders and bicycles from Jefferson City back to Rocheport after the ride. The shuttle will be an air-conditioned motor coach and the bicycles will be safely packed and transported on moving trucks.
