Bicycle battle of the sexes

Two of St. Louis’s top cyclists will go head-to-head Saturday in an indoor race for charity. The inaugural Rollin’ for Charity Indoor 100 Bike Race will pit man versus woman and mountain bike versus road bike in a race to raise cash and ride 100 miles on bicycle rollers at Alpine Shop’s Kirkwood store.

Chris Ploch, the reigning and four-time Missouri State NORBA Mountain Bike Champion, and Carrie Cash, the current Missouri State Cyclocross Champion, will be competing for more than four hours to raise funds for the ALS Association St. Louis Regional Chapter and the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

The event begins at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Kirkwood store, 440 N. Kirkwood Road. The challenge is part of the store's Outdoor Fitness Festival.

According to a press release, Alpine Shop will give $350 to the winner's charity and $150 to the other charity. Both cyclists -- who work for Alpine Shop -- are hoping people will donate to their causes, and you can find links to them at the Alpine Shop site.

Ploch will be riding a mountain bike, while Cash will be riding a road bike.
