Building Community Around Active Lifestyles
The Trailnet Classics are unique, supported, and community-focused multi-distance bike rides for people of all comfort levels.
Unique | Are you looking for roads less traveled or familiar cityscapes? The Trailnet Classics bike rides are designed for people of any comfort level. The Classics feature multiple routes that are specially-designed and safely marked starting around 10 mi with longer routes closer to 100 mi. Choose the adventure right for you!
Supported | Every Trailnet Classic includes fully stocked rest stops with food and water in addition to S.A.G. (support and gear) vehicles to help with flat tires and mechanical issues.
Community-focused | Trailnet is a non-profit dedicated to building safer streets for all. Your registration helps fund our work to improve biking in our region. We help build safer streets, advocate for bike-friendly reforms and introduce new people to biking. This work is supported by our riders and members.

Trailnet’s Ride the Rivers Century is the best 100-mile ride in the Midwest!
Registration coming soon.
The Ride the Rivers Century presented by Streets of St. Charles is the best 100 mile bike ride in the Midwest. Challenge yourself on our flagship ride of the year. Ride the Rivers brings together all of the best elements of biking across the region.
The route is the experience. From an early morning on the Katy Trail, to ferry crossings, to cruising along the Mississippi, cutting through the City, rolling through Forest Park and ending with a street party in St. Charles; this supported ride gives you a unique chance to crush 100 miles.
Want to join in on the century fun but don’t want to knock out a full 100 miles? Enjoy a very European 100 km (62 mi) metric century that explores the Missouri and Mississippi River valleys before returning to St. Charles for the festivities.
2021 Community Bike Rides
Trailnet Community Rides are your chance to explore the region and connect with the stories and history that formed our community.
Each Community Ride is created in collaboration with community partners to create rich educational experiences. This year features a mix of in-person rides and self-guided tours.
Our goal is to unite people and gain a deeper understanding of St. Louis history while promoting safe bicycling.
You can watch this quick video tutorial on how to get set up when tackling our scavenger hunts.

Nonprofit Partner Rides
Trailnet is proud to partner with other community nonprofit partners to host rides. With plenty of routes, locations, amenities, and activities to choose from, you’ll find one or more that suits your interests, time frame, and skill level. Whether you’re passionate about one of these worthwhile causes – or just passionate about riding – take the challenge. Nonprofit partner rides include The Moonlight Ramble and Pedal the Cause.
Free Weekly Group Rides
Local bike shops and select Trailnet partners host these recurring weekly rides. No SAG vehicles are provided and no rest stops are planned. Each ride is either a “drop ride,” or “no drop ride.” “Drop rides” are set at a specific pace and slower riders may “drop” off if they don’t keep up. “No-drop rides” accommodate the pace of every rider.
