The Big Shark Gravel Growl is a 26+ mile gravel community ride. Leaving from Big Shark's West location (17233 Chesterfield Airport Road, 63005). We'll be riding from Big Shark's parking lot to the headwaters of locally accessible gravel goodness. We will dodge traffic and use the paved, unpaved, and gravel roads of the Monarch Levee Trail, KATY Trail, Busch Greenway, and the Hamburg Trail. You can opt for some extra grinding in Busch Wildlife Area. We will provide a friendly Shark (former Shark, Zach Smith, or the freshly drafted, John Caldwell)
Cost is FREE. If you would like to receive ride updates please RSVP and let us know if you're interested or coming.
The Deets: Wheels roll at 9:00am. Pace will be chilled out. We might break out into groups based on pace- feel comfortable and ride at your own pace. Gravel Bikes, Cyclocross Bikes, Mountain Bikes, and hybrids are welcome. We do recommend a bit of tread, 700 x 30 (or wider width) tires.
