You may drop off your bags at Shiloh and then park the car and return to register if that is easiest for you.

Is there a shuttle service back to Columbia on Saturday night?
The Pedaler's Jamboree does not organize a bus shuttle service for riders who would like to get back to Columbia on Saturday night. However, there are shuttle services and taxis available in Boonville that can help get you set up with transit. Contact the Katy Trail Shuttle (Marvin Cotten) at: (660) 537-0164 - He can transport up to 7 bicycles. There are other taxis services available in Boonville and you will be able to drop your bike off at the Kemper Park Bike Check Service if you want to leave your bike in Boonville for the night.

Who will be leading the ride?
Whoever wants to be the first person to leave registration will be the leader! It's all on the Katy Trail, so as long as you stay on the trail you will find yourself in Boonville! We are expecting over 2,000 participants, so everyone should have someone new to ride with. It's such a relaxed-pace ride that it will be hard to be left in the back!

What items do I need for the ride & during the night?
Items needed for the ride: We recommend bringing cash (since most small towns and vendors on the trail don't take credit!), water, sunscreen, snacks, and whatever else might come in handy for a day of riding and relaxing. For night time, bring a tent, sleeping bag, and change of clothes.

Is it happening rain or shine?

Rain or shine, the show will go on!

Are camp fires allowed at Kemper Park?
No campfires will be allowed at Kemper Park.

Where will we be camping at Kemper Park?
Camping will be available on the grass soccer fields and surrounding areas. PLEASE NO FIRES. If you are looking for more remote camping with firepits, check out the Katy Roundhouse in Franklin about 5 miles from Kemper.

Are showers available at Kemper Park?
The Boonville YMCA is located next to the festival/camping area. Facility open on Saturday, May 25. The pool is open until 4:30 pm - Showers available until 10:00 pm. Individual shower cost is $3 and towels are not provide. YMCA closed on Sunday, May 26. We will also be offering free cold showers at the campgrounds this year!


Are there cycling jerseys available for purchase for this year's ride?
Yes! Check our on-line store for details: www.offtrackevents.myshopify.com

Where can I purchase food/beverages on the bike ride?
There will be food and beverage vendors at Lucy's in McBaine, restaurants and the beer garden in Rocheport, The Beer Garden at the The Katy Roundhouse in Franklin, multiple restaurants in Boonville, and plenty of food and beverage vendors at Kemper Park. Please bring cash for vendors on the trail!

How many bags can I bring on the transport service?
We kindly request that you limit the number of bags that you bring on the event. Coolers and large tents are allowed but please don't exhaust our transport crew by bringing overly large and heavy items.

I am staying at a Hotel and would like to have my geared dropped off at a Boonville location. Can I have my bags dropped off for me?
We aren't offering a hotel bag drop off option this year but are offering a free bus shuttle to Boonville hotels for people and gear from Kemper Park as well as a bike check service. Click here for more info.

Will there be a sag service in case we can't complete the bike ride to Boonville?
We will have an emergency transport service for riders unable to complete the daily ride. Sag support includes
a ride into Boonville or back to Columbia (on Sunday).
