The Saturday Morning Road Ride heads westward from the shop, and uses cycling-compatible roads in Webster Groves, Kirkwood, and Ladue. Complimentary bagels and coffee are served after the ride.
With three distance options and start times, this no-drop ride is suitable for riders of all abilities. Intended for road bikes, riders on hybrid and off-road bikes will usually find it hard to keep up the pace. There is no sag support, but there is generally a shop staff rider to help in case of mechanical trouble.
