Proposal for Sponsorship

The Grove Criterium will take place in The Grove centrally located in the St. Louis area. This first annual bike race will feature a series of criterium races. We believe that we can create an event that is unique and that embraces the community and provides broad entertainment for cyclists and non-cyclists! To achieve such an extravaganza, your race director will incorporate a team of individuals and companies to generate the most unique and well attended event The Grove neighborhood has ever seen.
