Welcome to another edition of our cycling series brought to you by Godspeed Socks! Today, we're exploring The Katy Trail in Texas, a converted rail-trail that spans over 200 miles of picturesque countryside.

Named after the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, which was commonly known as the MKT or the Katy, The Katy Trail is a cyclist's dream come true. The trail offers a smooth and mostly flat ride, making it perfect for cyclists of all levels. The trail also offers a variety of terrains, from forested areas to open prairies, so there's never a dull moment on this ride.

One of the most popular starting points for the Katy Trail is in Dallas, where you can begin your ride in the heart of the city and make your way to the trailhead. From there, you'll pass through quaint towns and cities like McKinney, Frisco, and Grapevine, each with its own unique charm and history.

As you make your way along the trail, you'll be treated to stunning views of the Texas countryside, including rolling hills, fields of wildflowers, and the occasional herd of cattle. The trail also passes through several state parks, including Katy Trail State Park, which offers camping facilities for those looking to make a multi-day trip out of their ride.

When it comes to cycling gear, be sure to stop by Richardson Bike Mart, located in Dallas, for all your cycling needs. They offer a wide range of bikes, gear, and accessories, as well as expert advice and friendly service.
