2020 Rumble to the River - Customer Appreciation and Charity Partner Training Ride 7/19/2020

Event Postponed. Due to the spike in Covid Cases- we are going to postpone the 2020 Tour de Sharks/Rumble to the River event to a better time later this year (we hope). We look forward to sharing the road, some beers, and fellowship with all of you. We'll post the rescheduled date as soon as we can plan one.

Please Join us at Big Shark West for our 9th annual customer appreciation ride. We will be rolling from the Missouri River Valley in Chesterfield "almost" to the Mighty Mississippi in downtown STL and back. The shorter ride option will be an out-and-back jaunt to our central, Big Bend location.

Our Rumble to the River rides are used to pump up and prepare for two of our favorite charity rides- this fall's Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Cycle for Life and the Pedal the Cause Ride. Get motivated! Ride for two great causes.
