Summer in Missouri is one of the best times of the year. Kids are out of school, the weather is beautiful and everything and everyone just seems a bit happier. During these few short months throughout the year, Missouri is alive and well with outdoor adventures for families, couples and kids alike.
There are many of lakes and rivers for boating and swimming enthusiasts, caves and hiking trails that satisfy the explorer in all of us and theme parks from St. Louis to Kansas City that are fun for the whole family. But, one of the best things summer in Missouri has to offer are the dozens of bike festivals held across the state during this time of year.
From May to August there are over 20 bike festivals spread across the state that range from hundred mile races for competitive bikers to casual 10-mile rides for beginners. Whether you are looking for a mountain bike race, a charity ride or a bike trail that takes you right into a music festival, Missouri has a bike festival for every kind of rider.
Here is a list of all the upcoming bike races and festivals coming to Missouri this summer!
