Tour of Missouri: Related events

If you're coming to St. Louis for the Tour ofMissouri, which begins Monday, or the Gateway Cup series of bicycle races, which begins Friday, you may be interested in a couple of events:

On Thursday night, the St. Louis Regional Bicycle Federation is presenting the movie "Veer," a look at the bicycle culture in Portland, Ore. The movie will be shown at the Tivoli Theatre, 6350 Delmar Blvd. in University City. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the movie begins at 7. Admission is $10, and you can buy advance tickets through the Tivoli's online ticket site. You can watch the trailer below:

On Friday night, the Soulard Art Market hosts a reception for the "Spoked!" exhibition of bicycle-related art. The opening reception is from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Soulard Art Market, 2028 S. 12th St. in St. Louis. An encore viewing party takes place from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday.

The gallery is near the Stage One course as it makes its way on Russell Street through the historic Soulard neighborhood, and it will be open from noon to 6 p.m. Labor Day so Tour of Missouri spectators can view the exhibit.

Don't forget your bicycle! On Sunday, Trailnet will be putting on the Giro and Tour of Missouri Bicycle Ride in St. Louis' Italian neighborhood, The Hill. Registration takes place from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the Shaw Visual and Performing Arts Community Education Center, 5329 Columbia Ave. Routes of 22, 30 or 43 miles will be available. After the ride, you can enjoy the Gateway Cup Giro Della Montagna, which also takes place on The Hill.

If you want to explore St. Louis on your own, check out the Bike St. Louis network on marked bike routes on city streets.

Of course, there are non-cycling events going on in the St. Louis area. Those include the Illinois-Missouri college football game Saturday at the Edward Jones Dome, the Japanese Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden and the Big Muddy Blues Festival at Laclede’s Landing.
