That way, at least we'll know if we can stand each other for a couple hours before we spend the day together riding
If you want to meet up sometime, please check my PM?

Peace.

I am in South County, near SoCo Mall. Waiting for the 50 degree sunny days for a good ride.

Re: St Louis City/County

Weather was nice enough today that I took my girl for a ride. First time out on 170 & 70. Was nice to get out of city speed limits and really open her up

This next weekend is supposed to be dry (as long as the snow melts) and in the upper 50s and lower 60s. I know Sunday is Easter (for those that celebrate), but if anyone is down for a Saturday or Sunday ride, let me know.

I subscribed to this thread so I get emails and the cell phone app alerts me whenever someone replies here. Or, you can PM me. I'm up for either side of the river, we can go for a ride through some country fields or go bar hopping (to stay warm, obviously) across the county.

Anyone interested in a slightly chilly ride?

For those on the MO side, it looks like a pretty decent middle ground is Highway 67 and Watson Road. There is a biker loving bar and grill there, Mile 277.

From there, I'm not sure the best route to take. We could head south/southwest and ride along the Meramec. We could head west/northwest and ride through the hills of Ballwin and Wildwood areas. Further south we have Butler Lakes and the Arnold area.

If anyone knows these areas and has any input on good routes, that would be awesome!

I'm new to the area and have lived in Missouri for less than a year; however I can say that the Meramec or Wildwood options sound good.

I found this loop - Motorcycle Roads (MO): Catawissa Loop

It's about 80-90 miles. Instead of hitting 44, we can take 67 south to 30/Gravois and then Gravois Rd west towards the rest of the loop and then once we get back to the MM/30 intersection those of us who live north can split off from those who live south and we can continue on until we hit our respective exits - or we can meet back at Mile 277 at the end of the ride to regroup and then we can all head out.

I'm good with whatever.

Edit: I recreated the Catawissa Loop into Google Maps (or at least, pretty close) - http://goo.gl/maps/GrHXk [Edit2: updated map]
