30th Annual Missouri River Festival of the Arts Bike Tour
August 20, 2022
Check in begins at 6 am Ride leaves Thespian Hall at 7:30 am
This is our 30th Year!
For those who may be riding with us for the 1st time; the Festival Ride is held in
conjunction with the Missouri River Festival of the Arts and is sponsored by the
Friends of Historic Boonville, a group dedicated to the arts and the preservation of
our historic structures.
Your ride will begin (and end) at the historic Thespian Hall in Downtown Boonville.
From there, you will head out on the 42 mile “Wooldridge Route” (route marked).
Once you arrive in Prairie Home (2nd Rest Stop) you will roll on to Wooldridge… or
take the optional “Loop to Lupus” (Lupus is a small community right on the Missouri
River). The “Loop” adds 10 very challenging (hilly) miles to the original 42-mile
route for a total of 52 miles. All miles are some of the more scenic in Missouri with
decent road surfaces and relatively little traffic.
This year we are adding a 3rd route option for those riders who aren’t quite ready to tackle Wooldridge or Lupus. This will be a 22 mile out and back route. The 22 mile riders will ride out the first 11 miles with the riders on the other routes, but will turn around at the first rest stop at approximately mile 11.
As always, it is the people who make it a great ride! So please join us and bring your
