The StG Gravel Classic presented by Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital explores the backroads and levees along the Mississippi River in and around Ste. Genevieve, Mo. Challenge yourself and your friends with great gravel riding and enjoy everything historic Ste. Genevieve has to offer. Trailnet’s inaugural gravel ride covers a lot of ground only accessible by bike and is 90% unpaved.
The StG Gravel Classic is Trailnet’s first-ever gravel grinder event. In the spirit of gravel biking, we have made the routes accessible to all skill levels and limited the amount of time spent on roads with cars.
