Are there community rides that would be well suited for adapted bikes?
Yes, Cycle St. Louis and Trailnet have partnered to create an “inclusive” ride calendar. Every Trailnet ride will have a short course where cyclists can turn around at any time. In addition, Cycle St. Louis participants and their helpers will receive free rides by using the code: WAITING FOR TRAILNET TO GIVE TO US. See the Cycle St. Louis calendar of events, which contains links to every Trailnet ride.
