2019 Ride the Rivers
September 21 @ 6:30 am - 6:30 pm
Trailnet’s classic 100 mile ride now in it’s 15th year is the only century ride in North America (or possibly the world) with two different ferry crossings. The metric century has three ferry crossings! In addition to one of the most scenic rides in the midwest, you’ll receive your choice of commemorative socks or a patch plus a delicious, customized lunch. The route features five rest stops–each with their own unique snacks. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet some of the coolest people around and see some of the area’s most beautiful scenery! And don’t forget the victory party held after the ride with free beer, live music and lots of food for purchase.
Take advantage of our hotel package and stay just a few feet away from the start of the ride. No waking up before daylight, loading the bike and driving while still groggy to make the start then forgetting your shoes or helmet! Once again Tru by Hilton is offering a great rate for Ride the Rivers guests on Friday and Saturday night. Click here to book your room. Use code RRT when it asks for your unique code and rest in peace before the big event!
Can’t participate in Ride the Rivers 2019? Volunteer with us! Trailnet is looking for great people to help out at our biggest ride of the year. Volunteers have the choice of helping out at one of our many rest stops along both routes, at registration, or tearing down afterward. As an added bonus, all volunteers will get a Ride the Rivers t-shirt, lunch, and entrance into the amazing after party!

|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.
