In partnership with the Recreation Council of Greater St. Louis, the Missouri Department
of Conservation is offering a bike, cycle, wheelchair and scooter ride on Saturday,
August 24, 2019, from 5 p.m.—7 p.m., on the Busch Greenway bike trail in St. Charles.
This is a FREE program tailored to persons with disabilities, their families and friends,
and anyone else interested in a leisurely ride. Individuals wishing to walk the trail are
also welcome! The paved Busch Greenway bike trail is wooded and partly shaded and
approximately 1 mile. For riders who wish to go further, the trail connects to the Katy
Trail. Riders can go the distance they feel comfortable with and at their own pace!
All riders MUST have a working bike/cycle/wheelchair/scooter and support
accompaniment (if needed) on the ride, a bike helmet and drinking water. Gas-powered
units are not allowed on the trail. It is also strongly recommended that you bring bug
spray since the trail is wooded. Please note that there are no restrooms at the trail so
plan accordingly.
Directions: From highway 64/40 go South on highway 94. Take an immediate left at
the stoplight by the commuter parking lot. Follow for about 1 mile to the Duckett Creek
Sanitary District sign (not the stop sign) and go left and follow to the bike trail parking
lot. There will be volunteers to assist with getting your bike/cycles, etc. , out or off of
your car.
