Blind St. Louis bicyclists to ride DNR Katy Trail Ride

Today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch has an article about blind bicyclist Bob Arnzen:
"I love to bike," said Arnzen, who lost his sight in 1982 as a result of diabetes that was first diagnosed when he was 4 years old. . . .

The duo ride together about once a month and are gearing up for Riding Missouri's Weinstrasse-Katy Trail Ride 2005. The event takes place June 20-24. It is sponsored by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and Missouri State Parks Foundation. Three hundred cyclists will pass through Missouri's wine country on their journey from Clinton to St. Charles. On average, riders will cover 45 miles a day.

This year the pair will travel 225 miles and stop each night in towns that will include Clinton, Pilot Grove, Hartsburg, Hermann and Augusta.
