The Bike Stop Cafe's fresh and delicious food will be desirable anywhere in Saint Charles!

to move on main street would be perfect. Lots of bike traffic and bike rental for sure since you would be visible from the Katy Trail - also snacks, fruit to go would be a hit. karen Fraser

We need to work to come up with creative ways to link these two areas. I think that Frenchtown needs more businesses like the Bike Stop to become more of a destination than a drive through. I can see for them that being closer to the Katy Trail would benefit their business though.
