This fun annual event brings awareness to the importance of making cycling accessible for everyone and is geared for individuals of all ages and abilities.  Join cyclists who share the vision of a more inclusive cycling community in the St. Louis region.

All abilities. All ages. All levels of expertise. Individuals, families, groups, teams. ALL are welcome! Enjoy the camaraderie of professional and amateur racers who ride alongside participants to demonstrate their support as well.
