2023 Fall Big BAM on the Katy
The City of Clinton is about to have some visitors. This Sat., Sunday and Monday (10/7, 8 and 9), about 160 bicyclists plus a support team will be in Clinton preparing for and then launching the 2023 Fall Big BAM on the Katy.
Most will camp out near the Henry Co. Fairgrounds and you are more than welcome to stop by and visit with some of the riders Sunday afternoon and evening. In the past, riders have come here from all over the United States to take part in this week-long ride on the Katy Trail. Probably about 30 to 40 will be using our hotels and most will be spending money in our community in the short time they are here.
The organizers of the Big BAM on the Katy will also be spending money in Clinton with some of our retailers and food providers. A big thanks to the folks with the Community Center/Benson Center and the Henry Co. Fairgrounds for their help in these events each year.
The band “Crossfire South” will be performing in the Benson Center on Sunday from about 6:15 to 8:30pm and the public is invited.
The riders will take off Monday morning by 8am heading east and when they arrive back in Clinton on the 14th via bus, many will stay in Clinton again before heading home on the 15th.
