Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

This year marks the second installment of the Big BAM on the Katy, the fall version of the Big BAM, or Bike Across Missouri. The Katy Trail is nearly 240 miles and the longest rails-to-trails project in the United States. It’s off-road riding within Katy Trail State Park, closely following the Missouri River. The route passes through the state’s wine country—near the town of Hermann, German settlers have been growing grapes since the 1830s. “You’ll find great bratwurst and beer, plus there are a dozen wineries in the region,” says Greg Wood, the ride’s executive director. Daily mileage ranges from 40 to 60 miles, but with easy grades and no cars to contend with, it’ll make for an easy ride that’s perfect for beginners and younger cyclists.

MoBikeFed comment: Unfortunately due to Katy Trail flooding and closures this year, BigBAM on the Katy has been cancelled for 2019. However, planners say it will be back in October 2020:
