Canceled: 2021 Bicentennial Fun Ride

at Katy Trail State Park

Due to the flooding along the Missouri River and Katy Trail State Park over the past month, Missouri State Parks has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Bicentennial Katy Trail Ride. There are nearly 100 miles of Katy Trail State Park that were impacted with flood damage including washouts, bridge damage, downed trees, debris, silt accumulation and inconsistent trail surfacing. We currently have teams working on repair daily but will need additional time to make all the needed repairs.  

For more information, email or call Missouri State Parks toll-free at 800-334-6946.

Not ready for a century bike ride? Join us on a 25-mile Bicentennial “Fun Ride” instead!

WHEN: Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021

In addition to our two bicentennial 100-mile century rides, we’re also offering a family-friendly 25-mile Bicentennial Fun Ride to join the century cyclists on the last leg of their journey.

Here’s how it will work: As the century cyclists from St. Charles pass through Portland, Fun Ride participants will join in on their final 25 miles. A second group of Fun Ride participants will hop on the Katy Trail at McBaine and ride with the century cyclists to North Jefferson on their final 25 miles. Both groups have the option of camping in Memorial Park in Jefferson City on Saturday night, enjoying live music at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site and breakfast on Sunday morning.


  • Breakfast on Sunday.
  • Optional outdoor camping spaces on Saturday night at Memorial Park, Jefferson City.
  • Hot shower facility.
  • Gear shuttle.
  • Detailed route map.
  • SAG support.
  • Bicentennial Ride T-shirt.
  • Bicentennial water bottle.
