Please Join us at Big Shark's Urban Shark City Foundry Location for our 10th annual customer appreciation ride. We are teaming up with STL favorites Kaldis, Companion, Urban Chestnut Brewery, and Pedal the Cause for a free training ride.

We'll have three distances - 25 miles, 40 miles, or 50 miles. We'll be rolling from the heart of the City Foundry in Downtown West. We'll have plenty of monitored parking on the West entry across from the IKEA.

The Tour des Sharks training ride feaures our support for Pedal the Cause. This year there are fewer training opportunities for www.pedalthecause.org so join us and sign up to fight cancer. If you're not registered you can sign up or donate to the Bikes, Beans, and Brews team!
