The Connecting St. Louis Vision Tour
October 7, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Join us to explore how our built environment — the way our streets are designed and connected — effects the way we live in our city. How could our streets help us feel safer while biking and walking? What could living in a more bikeable, walkable city feel like? Plus, get a behind-the-scenes view of the latest developments around St. Louis and learn some tips and tricks for riding a bicycle more confidently!
Trailnet is sponsoring this program in partnership with Missouri Humanities Council with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Connecting St. Louis Vision Tour is a part of the Missouri Humanities Council’s Environmental Humanities Public Program Series. Trailnet’s Community Rides are designed to bring history to life as we bicycle to historic and cultural sites across St. Louis. Residents and visitors have the opportunity to actively learn about and experience the city in a truly unique and memorable way — on two wheels!
Meet us on Sunday, October 7 at Cortex’ @4240 Building next to the new Cortex Metrolink Station to experience Trailnet’s vision for Connecting St. Louis first-hand. Led by Trailnet CEO Ralph Pfremmer, this 10-12 mile ride is perfect for beginners and experienced riders alike. Registration starts at 9 a.m., and we will depart at 9:30.
Trailnet members ride for free, and non-members pay just $8. Click here to register online today and reserve your spot!

|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.
