The Calhoun County Classic is a hidden gem of a ride with 360 degrees of green pastures, orchards, and rivers over rolling whispering roads. Push yourself while you explore some of the most picturesque views of the Mississippi River Valley.
We are proud to partner with our friends at Pedal the Cause for this year’s inaugural ride by adding it as an official ride in the Pedal The Cause Training Series. It’s time to shake out those legs for the big weekend.
Pedal the Cause takes place September 25 & 26, 2021. 100% of participant-raised funds support local cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
Schlafly Beer is the official beer sponsor of the 2021 Trailnet Classics.
Want to really push yourself? The St. Louis Cycling Alliance will lead a “race pace” group ride on the long route.
