Within each of these host communities, the race course is a defined one mile lap and the race is known as a criterium. This Americanized style of racing appeals to both athletes and spectators alike as the peloton, or pack of cyclists, pass by every few minutes at impressive speeds holding lines only inches apart from one another. Spectators can watch the race develop lap after lap and hear commentators announce race strategy, allowing more of an understanding and involvement in the excitement.
There are five to six races each day based on ability, ranging from newbies to pros. Each day is punctuated by the feature event, the men’s Pro-Am race. In this race, 150 of the nation’s top cyclists will hurl themselves through corners averaging 30 mph towards a typically thrilling sprint finish. Guaranteed inspiration.

Regional bike plan
Great Rivers Greenway is leading an effort along with core partners to prepare a Bicycle Master Plan for the City of St. Louis, St. Louis County and St. Charles County. The Bicycle Master Plan will be an implementable plan for on-road and multi-use trails to increase use of bicycles as a mode of transportation. A Citizens’ Advisory Committee (CAC) is being formed to assist GRG with the Bicycle Master Plan.
