Where: Begins downtown at Post Office Plaza
815 Locust St.
Details: Join Trailnet, CMT and WeCar for the Great Race between TEAM BIKE, TEAM TRANSIT, and TEAM CARSHARE as they compete in a head-to-head battle to see which transportation mode can travel from downtown to Clayton the fastest.
The race will kick off from Post Office Plaza at 4:45 p.m. when Mayor Francis Slay gives the official signal to start the race.
Members of TEAM BIKE will run to the Downtown Bike Station to pick up their bikes, TEAM TRANSIT will run to board MetroLink at the 8th and Pine station, and TEAM CARSHARE will run to pick up its WeCar parked at 10th and Washington.

We'll have a business card drop for anyone who rides his or her bike to join TEAM BIKE at C.J. Muggs for the chance to win a $50 Big Shark Bicycle Company gift card!
