Luke Davis of Marthasville Bikes Entire 240-Mile Katy Trail in One Day |

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:

Luke Davis dreamt about this moment for three years — maybe longer. In fact, the night before his trek across Missouri, the Marthasville man could hardly sleep. . . .

At 240 miles with access points in nearly 30 Missouri towns, the mammoth trail rivals only the Missouri River and Interstate 70 for the title of “most thorough thoroughfare” across the state.

While the trail attracts around 400,000 visitors each year to bike, hike, walk or run, the number who have successfully biked its full length in one day stands at just over 30.

Exactly 15 hours, 32 minutes and 20 seconds after setting off from Clinton Saturday, Oct. 10, Davis joined their ranks.

“Riding the whole trail in a day was a three-year obsession,” Davis said. “I always had it in the back of my mind as something I wanted to do.”
