The rolling countryside has great scenery, picturesque farms, fields of wildflowers on lightly traveled country lanes. Plus, our ride
features the best rest stop treats around. Yes, our Missouri friends might need to drive a little, but the trip down Interstates 70 or 64 is
about the same as traveling from downtown to West County. Plus, the trip is worth it and we promise a ride to remember. After you ride,
there's am all-you-can eat hot meal with lots of variety, including pizza, salads, soups, hot plates, sandwiches, etc. served in
Ames Dining Hall at McKendree University.
We're continuing the Moe Metric Century and the full 100-mile route — the Roger Kramer Memorial Century named after the founder of
Tour de Stooges. There's a 9 mile route, too, and other intermediate routes for your velocipedic pleasure — something for everyone, and
family-friendly, too. After the ride, we spread out, eat and watch Three Stooges shorts until the cows come home. Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.
