Ride on the West Side


Looking for a long-but-leisurely bike ride to start your week off right? Park that gas-burnin' bucket of bolts in the Des Peres City Park parking lot (1380 North Ballas Road; Des Peres) by 6 p.m. any Monday through September 10, and take your velocipede for a liberating early evening excursion. The Trailnet Monday Night Ride is a pleasant and free way to ensure some calories are burned in the post-work, pre-Daily Show hours. All you need is your bike, a helmet (no exceptions -- they're required), some water and maybe a Clif bar or two. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a more casual rider, this moderately hilly 24-mile route is sure to make your calves burn. For more information, visit or call 314-436-1324.
Mondays. Starts: June 4. Continues through Sept. 10, 2012
