The 2nd Annual Uber Asphalt offers participants several new urban bike riding experiences.

CRUSHERS: The original ride is an obstacle hunt using bikes, brains and brawn. Where teams of two strategize their routes on a scavenger hunt through St. Louis that starts and ends at Lift For Life Academy, 1731 S. Broadway in Soulard. At six or more checkpoints, riders collect bottle caps to be redeemed at the ride’s end for a 6 pack of New Belgium craft beer, for the under 21 crowd a 6 pack of craft soda. And every rider receives a commemorative pint glass free. This group is referred to as Crushers in the registration process and will require you to have one person register as the captain of the 2 person team (and pay) and the other to register as a member of the team. There will be a prize for top three in each category: co-ed team, male team, female team and family team.

CRUISERS: This new division this year offers a ride for individual cyclists who want to ride to each station but not compete in the obstacles. Solo cyclists - aka Cruisers - will collect bottle caps and play the Page Ripper Game, ripping pages from textbooks at each station. The rider with the lowest page number total at the end of the race, wins. Strategizing, speedy Cruisers will win this new category. There will be a prize for top three females and males.

FUNDRAISING: Donations from individuals like you ensure that Lift for Life Academy can continue to teach 580 of St. Louis city’s at-risk youth. While Lift For Life has demonstrated the ability to do more with less, with the cuts of the past couple years, the school needs help to sustain the school and continue its mission.

We have added the option for riders to fundraise online and help serve these city children. You will be asked during registration if you wish to create a fundraising campaign. You can fundraise online and be eligible for various levels of prizes.
