Thank you St Louis!!!

Back in the mountains of Colorado after a great event yesterday. St. Louis got its 1st taste of the Urban Assault Ride and I'm pretty darn sure there were just as many smiles as bicycles out there. We'll have results up tomorrow and photos of you all up soon too.

The STL Post Dispatch came out to shoot the race and here's a photo gallery.

Here are some of my favorites:
In traditional UAR style, a Le Mans start kicked off the day
Costumes were in full-effect
Nice socks, ladies
The plunger paddle race is on!
The Scouts victorious...and a bit tired perhaps?
Bike Limbo! The winner hit 2'8" - pretty impressive considering that the mini bike limbo winners are usually only a few inches lower
A Whole Foods sack lunch, New Belgium beers, and soft grass makes for a nice nap.

Thanks to all of our sponsors - especially New Belgium Brewing and Whole Foods! Our checkpoints partners ROCKED it! Thank you City Museum, Mesa Cycles, Big Shark Cycles, and the Botanical Gardens. BICYCLEworks and TrailNet - we couldn't have done it without you all. Thanks to all of great volunteers and everybody else that spent the day with us!!! We love and bike STL!!!!!

  4. This was SO much fun, I can't wait until next year to do it again.

  5. I read about the Urban Assault Ride in Nashville and couldn't wait until it came to St. Louis. It certainly lived up to our expectations - we had a blast! We told all our friends how much fun it was - we'll definitely do it again next year!

  6. Thank you for the great event. St. Louis has a small but growing group of avid cyclers AND we love New Belgium :-). Hope to see you next year.
