The Missouri Life magazine hosted the first Big BAM bike ride on the Katy Trail, ending in St. Charles on Oct. 12.

The race lasted five days and ran for over 260 miles. 150 participants started, but on account of soggy weather only about 50 cyclists crossed the finish line.

Still the show went on, and Frontier Park had a band and food trucks scheduled to start after all the riders made it. 

Ultramax Sports and Pork Belly Ventures helped plan the logistics of the course and support.

LUTV Reporter Kayla Drake went to talk to cyclists about their experience.

Kayla is our multimedia producer, so basically all things video and podcasts. She prefers to cover human interest stories because she believes we learn best by hearing personal testimonies of grief, passion, tribulation and activism. When Kayla is not editing or writing, most likely she is either hiking or eating. And by eating she doesn’t mean fast food, college grub, but the St. Louis restaurant scene (which is to die for). She is a proud St. Louisan and is passionate about being a part in the city's redemption. Look for the girl with the stickered out water bottle on campus and say hi.
