Description

Women and gender non-binary cyclists: Join us for our sixth annual all-city team scavenger hunt and super rad party on wheels, The Diva Cup!

Riders of all levels are invited to join The Monthly Cycle for an epic afternoon of exploring the city, followed by sweet prizes, raffles, and a mini street fest featuring women- and GNB-friendly businesses. Costumes are encouraged, and all scavenger hunt stops are whimsical, fun, and designed to connect riders to the St. Louis community; we won't release the details until the day of the ride, but think tasks like “take a photo of a bike helmet on a dog’s head” or “find a feminist book at a local bookstore.” Seriously, get pumped.

THE SCHEDULE:

1:00p.m.: Check-in opens! Come to Diva Cup headquarters at Handlebar to connect with your team, get your scavenger hunt booklet, and grab some free mystery swag courtesy of our sponsors. Early-bird riders will have more time to strategize and plan their routes, check out exhibition tables from our sponsors, and grab drinks at Handlebar.
2:30pm: Roll out!
2:30-5:00pm: Non-riders: hang out with our sponsors, eat, drink and hope your favorite team wins!
5:00pm: Riders: race back to Handlebar! Late teams will lose points. Hang out and grab a drink while we tally your score, until...
5:30pm: Winners announced! We'll be awarding great prizes (and sweet trophies) to the highest scoring top 3 teams, as well as a few surprise awards.

THE DETAILS:

All participants in the Diva Cup must be part of a team of no fewer than two and no more than five riders. Don't have a team? We'll happily help you find a squad day-of and play matchmaker for you!

Every team will need at least one smartphone with a camera and internet access in order to compete.
BYOB (bring your own bikes), flat kits, water, lights helmets, and fully charged phones. The Monthly Cycle will provide light technical support in the case of mechanical failures.


THE FAQ:

• WHAT IF IT RAINS? We ride. Rain or shine!
