2019 Literary Tour Community Ride

September 28 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join Trailnet and our guide Harold Karabel on a bike tour of St. Louis Literary icons. We will start and end the ride at the newest development in Grand Center Arts District, The High Low, a new venue for freedom of expression through spoken and written word.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, St. Louis’ Central West and West End neighborhoods were home to a surprisingly large number of writers who became part of the American Literary Tradition. This tour visits the homes of eight iconic writers.

There will be an optional stop at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis at the end of the ride.

This fun, relaxed ride is about conversations, community, and exploration (not speed), riders of all experience levels are welcome!

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. For more ride information, click here.

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. If you have any questions about your bike or the ride in general, please call Alex at The Hub. Helmets are required. For more ride information, click here.
