The Tour of Missouri bicycle race will kick into full gear on Monday, September 8, 2008, letting cyclists spin their wheels for nearly a week before peddling into St. Louis on Sunday, September 14 for the final circuit race to finish the week-long, seven circuit tour.
The Renaissance St. Louis Grand & Suites Hotel, located in downtown St. Louis, is the ideal post-race crash pad to relax and unwind after the final leg of the journey. Treat yourself to a celebratory stay at this historic Saint Louis hotel as your muscles loosen and your legs unwind after one last busy day on the road.
The Family Fun Village will help to close out the event, complete with demonstrations and entertainment throughout the day, including live music, Kid's Safety on Bikes Program, St. John's Helmet Fittings and low cost helmets available to purchase. Check out the Metro bike rack, and get a free smoothie from Trailnet's Bike Blender. The Convention and Visitors Commission will also be manning a visitor information booth where guests have the opportunity to register to win an adult bicycle or a St. Louis vacation package. Visitors can also stop by to try out a Gateway Arch Quad Bicycle and learn all the great things to see and do in the city.
With a city population of over 300,000 not including the county and metro areas that add another one million residents, downtown St. Louis is sure to be buzzing with excitement and adrenaline.
