Day 3: Sedalia to Boonville

KTMaC meeting at Hawthorn Bank in Windsor

Leaving Sedalia Fairgrounds where we had camped, we stopped briefly to admire the Bothwell Hotel, where many of the Katy’s travelers stay before hitting the trail once again.

Becky’s Treats, Pilot Grove

In Pilot Grove, just one stop before entering Boonville, we noticed a small sign on the Trail head community bulletin board: Becky’s Burgers and Cones.  Closing in 2 minutes!  We hurried for a treat – chocolate pudding pie and homemade apple cake and ice cream using apples from Becky’s tree.  The fuel kept us going uphill into Boonville, where we encountered more Tour de Ted riders and support.  They informed us of a new addition to the Boonville Depot, a “Fix it Station” including a bike repair stand,

tools, and pump.  We also had a chance to chat with Chuck of Chuck’s Bikes in Boonville.  He does mobile bike repair – just give him a call (660)537-2048 and he’ll be there in 5!
