The Race Across America cycling event moves through Missouri this week and drivers are urged to use caution around the cyclists.
Cyclists and their support vehicles were expected to cross into Missouri Sunday, according to a release by the Missouri Department of Transportation.
Cyclists travel at their own pace, so drivers could encounter single riders or groups. Everyone involved in the race is required to follow standard traffic laws.
The scheduled race route includes U.S. 54 from the Kansas state line through Jefferson City. Cycles than travel on Missouri 94 to Herman and then Missouri 100 to Washington.
From there they travel on Missouri 47 back to Missouri 94 and through St. Charles County on Routes TT, T, D, Z, Pitman Ave., North Outer Road I-70, Routes C, B, 94, H, and U.S. 67.
Some routes in St. Charles County were closed due to flooding last week, and the race route may change depending on the condition of those roadways.
