Whether it’s your first hundred-mile ride or your next, you can’t miss Trailnet’s premier century ride. We also have a 25-mile route and a 64-mile route, so don’t feel like you need to go out and crush a full 100 miles. Register through August 1 for a reduced rate. You’ll receive your choice of commemorative socks or a patch. You also get 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!

We have also made arrangements with the Downtown Bike Station for free post ride showers! Showers are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. There is secure bike parking while showering.

Volunteer! We will have five rest stops across the three routes where riders will be able to take a break and refuel. Each stop will have unique snacks and refreshments. We need volunteers to staff the rest stops and make sure that everything stays well-stocked throughout the ride. Your help makes this ride possible and you’ll receive commemorative shirt (pictured) and drink ticket.

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.
