Pedal the Cause takes the health and safety of our community very seriously. We are in constant communication with the St. Louis County Health Department, local officials and health experts and have formed a Covid Advisory Board. Our event protocol is informed by St. Louis County Public Health Department’s current recommendations and regulations. We expect that some details will evolve and we will continue to make adjustments and accommodations to ensure your safety while also honoring our commitment to creating a world without cancer.

We rely on our participants to set goals, reach incentive levels, and to fundraise to be best of their abilities to achieve or mission of funding critical cancer research. As a result of the economic uncertainties brought about by COVID-19, we have implemented lower fundraising commitments than prior years. Riders, spinners and Inspired participants who register by July 1 will have a minimum commitment of $100 for one day, $200 for two days. After July 1, commitments will increase to $250 for one day, $500 for two days. Kids Challengers never have a fundraising commitment, but they can earn incentives for fundraising!
A variety of training ride options will be available in July and August. Visit our Training Resources page for a schedule and details on training ride events and other training resources.
If you are participating in-person as a rider or spinner, you will pick up your packet from Macy’s parking lot across from the Chesterfield Amphitheater the week before the ride. We will ensure the safety of all participants at packet pick up by implementing social distancing, mask wearing, and other COVID precautions. More details will be shared with participants via email. Please note: packet pickup will not be available on event days (Saturday, September 25 and Sunday, September 26). If you are registered as a virtual participant, you will receive your packet in the mail. It will be sent to the address you used at registration, so make sure that is up to date. If you need to change it, log in and edit your personal details, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
