2023 Park(ing) Day
Park(ing) Day is a global, public, participatory project where people across the world temporarily repurpose curbside parking spaces and convert them into public parks and social spaces to advocate for safer, greener, and more equitable streets for people.
To celebrate Park(ing) Day 2023 in St. Louis, Trailnet will be hosting a pop-up parklet + bike lane demonstration along Compton Ave from Shenandoah to Longfellow.
Come visit Trailnet’s Park(ing) Day pop-up + bike lane demonstration at 2292 Compton Ave. on Friday, September 15!
2023 Uphill Battle
The second annual Uphill Battle is all about ups and downs (and even more ups). This is Trailnet’s most challenging ride, and that’s the point. If you can conquer these hills in June, you’ll have no problems when it’s time to tackle Trailnet’s Ride the Rivers Century in the Fall…
Fair warning: The 2023 Uphill Battle features Category 3 climbs with grades over 10%—those are Tour De France-level numbers. This ride ain’t no joke.
But don’t be scared away. These routes run through some of Missouri’s most beautiful parks and wildlife areas. The sights are so beautiful, you may forget your legs are falling off.
The first 65 registrants get a free water bottle!
All finishers will receive a special token from our partners at Trailhead Bicycles.
Ride Start Time: 8am
Check-In Begins: 6:30 am
Start Location: Wildwood Middle School – 17401 Manchester Road Wildwood, MO US 63038

All riders will line up at 8 am and leave Wildwood Middle School as a group led by a police escort at a controlled pace. Once riders have been escorted to the start of the route, they may ride at their own pace. The group start is not optional and is required by the City of Wildwood.
StG Gravel Classic presented by SGCMH
The StG Gravel Classic presented by Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital is back for the second year! After being voted one of the best gravel grinders in Missouri by the readers of Terrain Magazine, we’ve come back with a dustier and more epic event. This year we’re adding a bigger pre-event packet pickup party, live music, and a few other surprises.
– New for 2023 –
We’ve added two new events! To encourage the next generation of gravel grinders, we have added the Little Pebbles category, which features a 5.5 mile loop and is aimed at ages 8 through 15. We believe that gravel grinders shouldn’t be limited to two wheels, so we’ve partnered with Big River Running and added a 5k walk/run.
Registration will be available online only and closes at 7:45 am on the morning of the event. Registered riders may pick up their numbers at packet pickup the evening before or on the morning of the event.
