Thursday, October 27—KATY Trail: Day 5, Hermann to Augusta, Missouri

A light breakfast buffet was served in a crowded, makeshift dining room at Harbor Haus.

Today’s ride is my favorite thus far—the cycling experience and trail were peaceful and serene as we rode through a tree tunnel much of the day.  There was practically no wind today, it was cool and overcast, and there was only 128 feet of elevation change over the 37.5 miles, making for near perfect riding conditions.  The sights along and on the trail were equally great.

There were two SAG stops, including lunch, before riding into charming Augusta—we’re still in the heart of Missouri’s German region.  Dinner was on our own, and we opted to eat at a Chinese buffet across the highway, before calling it an early night.
