BikeMO Event Management Request for Proposals (RFP)

The Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation (Federation) seeks a company or organization with event management, marketing, and fund raising skills (Event Manager) to organize, promote, operate, and find sponsorships for BikeMO 2011, the Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation's annual fall bicycle ride.

More details about the requirements of the BikeMO Event Management RFQ:

Through this event we hope to:

  • Hold a well organized, professionally run bicycle ride that is a positive, safe experience for participants.
  • Raise funds, $5000-$15,000, for the Federation, above and beyond event costs and event management fees.
  • Promote statewide awareness and media coverage of the Federation and bicycle and pedestrian advocacy issues it promotes.

The initial contract is for the 2011 event only.  However, long term we plan to build BikeMO into a much larger event and primary funding source for the Federation, similar in scope, size, and broad appeal to Indiana's Hilly Hundred and Maine's Lobster Ride and Roll. We seek your vision for growing BikeMO into this kind of event and will consider a longer-term contract for BikeMO event management immediately after BikeMO 2011.

Proposals are due as soon as possible.

Submit proposal via hard copy, fax, or electronic copy via email (PDF, Word, text files accepted--ask about other formats).  Electronic copy is preferred.  Mailed proposals must be received by this date and time.

Submit proposal and direct questions to:
