Tonight is the start of the 21st annual Gateway Cup bicycle races, four different events today through Monday.
Friday night is always the Tour de Lafayette, a great evening event.
Locations for the other days have varied, but all are daytime events.
- Saturday is the Tour de Francis Park in St. Louis Hills.
- Sunday is the Giro della Montagna on The Hill. Afterwards is the Giro Pasta Dinner “Sunday, September 2nd 4:00-8:00pm: St Louis Bocce Club 2210 Marconi @ Bischoff on race course. Menu includes all the Pasta you can eat, plus 2 meatballs, salad, Italian Bread, and dessert. $7 adults/$4 children. Tickets available at the door.”
- Monday is Benton Park Classic in…Benton Park, the neighborhood, not the actual park.
Please consider biking or taking public transit if you plan to watch these events, parking is limited. Some bus routes will be rerouted due to the races to plan accordingly. The races happen rain or shine.
