2018 TüFer Tandem Ride
June 17 @ 7:30 am - 3:00 pm
Grab a friend or two and join us for the newest ride on the Trailnet Calendar; the TüFer Ride! There is nothing more fun than enjoying a ride with a good friend and if you really want to do this one right, do it on a bicycle built for two!
Grab your bike and your friends for a great ride! All riders (singles too) are welcome and those with tandems get a sweet hookup. If you and your friend are on a tandem you get TüFer (2 for one) pricing; your stoker gets a free ride (pedaling required)!
The ride rolls out of the Bike Surgeon in O’Fallon, IL through the scenic countryside, up to Edwardsville and back. Bike Surgeon will have tandems from Santana Tandems on hand for you to try out after the ride. So if you have never had the chance to take out a bicycle built for two this might be the perfect opportunity to test your riding and relationship skills!
Mileage: 24 and 38
Terrain: Flat to rolling, Paved road and MCT Trails

|Saturday Ride||4/7/18||7:30 am||40 W. Lockwood Ave, St. Louis||18, 26, 30||This ride heads westward from the shop, and uses cycling compatible roads in Webster Groves, Kirkwood, and Ladue. There are three different start times to accommodate beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders. Many newer riders advance through the groups as their familiarity and riding skills grow. It is a ride intended for riders on road bikes, so hybrid and off-road bike riders will usually find their bikes’ wider tires make it hard to keep up the pace of the road bikes. There is no sag vehicle, but there is generally a shop-staff rider to help in case of mechanical trouble. Complimentary bagels and coffee served after the ride.

Lockwood Ave, St. Louis||12 – 15||For women only, and is intended for those who are new to road riding in general and especially those who are new to riding with traffic. It is a no-drop ride, so no one will end up riding alone! Hub friend, and local road rider Sandi Barrett will lead the group and will focus on fun and learning as the miles fly by! The women’s ride is intended for road bikes, so hybrid and off-road bike riders may find their wider tires make it hard to keep up the pace of the group.
