Big BAM (Bicycle across Missouri) will be riding through Rolla and St. James on June 21, day four of the five-day ride that starts in Joplin and ends in Eureka, where cyclists bike along historic Route 66.

The anticipated 550 to 600 cyclists will have a pit stop at the Visitor Center in Rolla where the Rolla Chamber of Commerce is hosting an event in partnership with Big BAM, stated Tourism Director for Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center, Aimee Campbell.

The 304 mile ride would seem daunting but local cyclist and biking enthusiast, Chester Kojro, states that the long distance ride is actually quite easy, and anyone in reasonable health can do it as long as they condition themselves by riding to get in shape and to avoid sore muscles that can occur on long rides such as the Big BAM
