A Record-Breaking Gala!
Trailnet held its annual Movers & Shakers: Connecting St. Louis Gala on Thursday, November 1. More than 450 bicycle and pedestrian advocates joined the celebration to support our plan for a network of protected bikeways. Check out the photos here.
Emcee Eli Chen with St. Louis Public Radio, and Trailnet Board President, Michael Hickey with Lewis Rice, kicked off the event. Co-Chairs David Wolfe and Florian Kuplent, Co-Founders of UCBC, and their crew showed up in spirit by rolling up to the stage on bicycles to toast Trailnet’s 30th anniversary.
Phil Hulse with Green Street St. Louis, the organization behind the redevelopment of the Armory, and Trailnet Board member Peder Hulse, who is deeply involved in the Grove and central corridor, discussed Trailnet’s energizing approach of working collaboratively to accelerate progress. Our Keynote Marius Johnson-Malone, with Better Together, shared insights into the role that mobility plays in bridging St. Louis’ racial equity gaps, promoting health, and sparking economic development as we work together.
Trailnet’s CEO, Ralph Pfremmer, highlighted our Connecting St. Louis routes that link neighborhoods north and south to job centers and the places we need to go every day. View our network map here. We’ve also jump-started sections of the plan. Check out the updated Story Map on our website. A city that is safe to bike and walk is a thriving city
Together, we are St. Louis. Together, we can make this plan a reality. It’s truly achievable in the near-term and
now is the time. Thank you to all who joined us for our Gala! Let’s keep the momentum going!
