Is it a bike shop or is it a coffee shop? I don't know, but the new Road Crew "coffee & cycles" shop has taken over the Monday night STL city ride formerly hosted by South Side Cyclery. The route is about the same, and it looks like the after-ride destination has changed to Taco Circus (OK by me!) and I figure it is just as fun as ever.
This one needs no introduction. One of my favorite rides, in the beautiful Wildwood area. 25 hilly miles. Groups of various skill & speed levels depart at varying times between 4 and 5:30, so let me know if you are a first-timer and/or you want more info. Mike Sorsen usually rides with a group from Lifetime Fitness' cycling class, and they welcome other cyclists to join them. Just be ready for lots o' hills, riding on roads (the Wildwood community is generally cyclist-friendly!), and riding in groups.

Join us for a fun 23-28 mile gravel ride using the Busch Greenway and the trails that run thru Busch Wildlife. This week ride will stay on the Katy, Hamburg and Busch loops. This is a no drop, re-group ride which means we'll regroup several times to let everyone get back with the group before the next section. We recommend a Gravel bike with 700x35 tires minimum. Check our FB page for weather related cancellations. Start time is 6pm every Tuesday and total ride time is approximately 1:45-2hrs. Starting in September you'll need lights for the last 30 minutes. Don't have a bike? We have demo bikes, give either shop a call and we'll set you up with a gravel bike for the ride. Helmets required and it's rumored there is beer after.
This ride is about the same as the Tuesday Big Chief Ride, but it starts at the Wildwood Y, instead. Here is the route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27208453
The start time will adjust over the course of the year.
