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.
