2019 Mississippi Valley Bike & Outdoor Expo
January 12 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
One event on January 13, 2019 at 10:00am
Plan to stop in and visit us on January 12 and 13 at the new and improved Bike Expo. It’s returning to St. Louis for the first time in many years and Union Station is the new venue. You will find us in booth 406 on the main floor. We’ll be talking up our Plan for the protected bike lanes in the city and showing off a few potential street candidates. Be sure to sign up for one of our two daily raffles and maybe you’ll win a cool prize!
Support the environment and make your visit green. Union Station is a stop on both Metrolink lines so be sure to take advantage while avoiding parking charges and congestion. Many of the Metrolink stations have free parking. Here is a route map with all the stations. Remember, if you buy a bike you can take it on the Metro!
In addition to the Trailnet booth, you’ll be able to browse over 100 exhibitors, get great deals on gear and related items, learn about events and adventures, and try your hand at on-site activities including a climbing wall, virtual bike rides and more!

|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.

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.
