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 a special code when registering. Email Cycle St. Louis at CycleSTLpartnership@gmail.com to obtain the FREE ride code. Trailnet rides can be found here,
