A favorite of local riders this event is held on Memorial Day Weekend in Lee’s Summit, MO, taking riders on a journey through the picturesque country roads of Jackson and Cass Counties. Riders will be treated to a great after-party in New Longview. This has served as the area’s only Gran Fondo, with routes up to 100 miles of varied terrain for a great day on the bike.
Experience the Queen City Century in Springfield, Missouri. Starting in Downtown Springfield, the roads quickly deliver riders into the open countryside and the beautiful bucolic scenery of the Queen City of the Ozarks. Multiple route options from the 24-mile guided city tour to a full century, and a great after-party make this event a perennial favorite and one of our most beautiful routes.
BikeMO is one of MOBikeFed’s oldest and most loved rides. Held in the beautiful Missouri River Valley, riders roll on low-traffic, country roads through some amazing historic areas and sites. Ride on the Santa Fe Trail, check out historical graveyards, swing into Arrow Rock and Blackwater to step back in time, and join us for the after-party in the historic river town of Boonville.
The inaugural Urich Bikefest in 2023 was a smashing success. An amazing line-up of bands, both Friday and Saturday, entertained at the beer garden.

Gravel and paved routes of up to 100 miles greeted riders allowing everyone to choose their distance and get back in time for the music festival!
Held in Wildwood, Missouri, and supported by the City of Wildwood, this ride offers routes up to 50 miles with shorter options for families and new riders.
