BikeMO is an annual fundraiser for the Missouri Bicycle Federation and the Missouri Bicycle Foundation. Proceeds from the event are used to help us in our activities of promoting bicycling and advocating for better bicycling conditions in Missouri.
The ride starts and ends at Les Bourgeois Winery and Vineyards in Rocheport, Missouri. Rocheport is centrally located with easy access from all areas of the state. The winery is only minutes away from Columbia, a vibrant city which will provide participants with more lodging, restaurant, and entertainment choices for a great weekend trip.
The road route will pass through several historic towns along the way including Rocheport, Boonville, Blackwater, and Arrow Rock. There is also an additional ride option along the Katy Trail for those riders who would prefer a trail ride. Celebrate the joy of bicycling and the Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation’s many successes on our annual fundraising ride, as we enjoy the beautiful scenery Mid-Missouri has to offer. The route offers varying ride lengths through the beautiful rural countryside of the Missouri River Valley.
After the ride stop by the A-frame to grab a bite to eat. Enjoy your meal while you watch the mighty Missouri River gently flow through the beautiful valley 250 feet below your feet. Those looking for a fine dining experience, can head next door to the Les Bourgeois Bistro for a culinary treat.
With many different wines and beers to choose from, everyone will find something to enjoy at the A-frame after the ride. Choose your libation and pick a shady spot to relax and rest your legs. BikeMO riders will receive a special discount off of their wine or beer selections.
You put in the miles. Your stomach is full and your drink is in hand. Now just sit back and enjoy the music and the one of a kind atmosphere. This year’s after-party will feature live music by Norm Ruebling Band from 4:00-sunset. BikeMO riders will pay no cover-charge!
