Participation in STLRC Rides & Hikes is at your own risk. STLRC assumes no liability.

Starting Location: Sue DiPiano’s Farm – 1501 Hwy D, Foristell MO 63348

Time of Departure:  8:00am

Description: Hills and rollers-scenic terrain with 2 climb according to Garmin.  1900 feet of climbing.   About 3 miles we will be riding on the Katy Trail.  Road bikes are fine on this fine chat.  Weather projection: – 79 degrees at 8:00am, up to 93 degrees at noon.  Please bring 2 full water bottes, and your own snacks. I don’t think the store in Augusta will be open.  I spoke with Augusta Winery and we are welcome to fill our water bottle on the side terrace if they are not open.

Special Considerations during this time:

Bring snacks and at least 2 water bottles  Good idea to bring a cooling cloth for your neck soaked in water. Be sure to hydrate well the day before and the morning of.  Put electrolytes in your water or take an electrolyte supplement. Please have a red blinking light so you will be seen.  lip bal Don’t forget your sunscreen and print off a cue sheet for route (if wanted).

West Hwy 64, left (southwest) on Hwy 94, Approximately 1 mile to Hwy D, right turn (west), 14 miles to Sue’s home, around a bend on the road (right side) Due to school in session, Hwy 94 traffic from Hwy 64, could take an extra 10 minutes or so.  Another option, continue on Hwy 64 to Hwy Z, head south (left) for approximately 6 miles to Hwy D, then right to Sue’s home.

Plenty of parking available. Good idea, to map on phone, hence easier to turn into Sue’s driveway-white 2 story home. Town of New Melle – 4 miles from Sue’s home has a service station, bathrooms available.  Bathroom available at Sue’s home.

Experience Level: 3-4Db – NO DROP RIDE

Stops: Re-group stops as needed.  Rest stop in Augusta.  If Augsta Emporium is open will stop there.  You can buy snacks, a soda, use the restroom.   However, it will most likely not be open.  In that case we will stop at Augusta Winery to fill up water bottle outside up the hill on the terrace area at Augsta Winery.  Next stop is at the Katy Trail Head in Dutzow.

Weather Considerations:  Ride will be canceled if raining at start time or if projected temperatures are too hot,  We won’t start in the rain but be advised that it can be raining at your home but not at the ride start location. Please watch the weather forecasts and radar. Always view the web morning of the ride, in case of cancellation due to weather,

Bring electrolyte drinks and snacks along on the ride for proper riding nutrition.
