Description:  Join us on the Giro Della Montagna Ride (Tour of the Hills in Italiano).  Explore a bike friendly route through city neighborhoods starting on the Hill.  This is a non-club ride sponsored by Trailnet.  After the ride,, we stick around and walk to  nearby Mama’s on the Hill, 2132 Edwards, St. Louis Mo 63110 to eat outdoors with tented  seating while swatching the men’s races.   Large groups of cyclists ride by  making quite a hum.  It’s pretty exciting and fun.  We will be doing the 31 mile route.  There are other options (4, 18, and 51 miles)  Feel free to do any route you prefer.  Check-In is as early as 6:30 and Trailnet expects everyone to be on the trails by 8:00 am–no later.  The purpose of the 8:00 am cutoff time is to help Trailnet manage SAG and Rest Stop support by knowing how many riders are out on the course.  They will appreciate our cooperation.  Navigation is provided. Rest stops are placed in roughly 15 mile increments with snacks, water, Gatorade and restrooms.  Go to for more specific information and how to register.

If you plan to ride with us on the 31 mile route, please contact Faye Holdenried so that we will look for your and not leave you behind.  If anyone is interested in just having lunch with us, contact Faye Holdenried and we will give you an estimated time to meet us at Mamas.  Faye Holdenried  636-399-4604
