Day 2: Windsor to Sedalia

KTMaC meeting at Hawthorn Bank in Windsor

From Farrington Park’s sunrise, we made our way back into town, to the Hawthorn Bank, where members and interested Katy Trail business people joined us for a Katy Trail Merchants and Communities meeting.  We recieved excellent feedback and were able to share our interest in making information about Katy Trail towns more accessible to riders.

We ate well at the Wagon Wheel Cafe in downtown Windsor – the turtle cream pie would give us the energy for the next section of trail!
