It's nearly upon us, that carefree cycling event that takes nude (and a few never-nudes) bike riders through the city of St. Louis. All that nakedness might leave you hungry -- or in need of a strong cocktail. Either way, follow Gut Check's guide to the best places along this year's route to grab a bite. You might want to bring some clothes, though...we can't guarantee they'll let you in sans pants.

The route starts in Tower Grove just off South Grand, goes through Cherokee Street, up through Soulard and downtown, down Washington Avenue, winds through the Central West End and finishes in the Grove.
Tower Grove Creamery (3101 South Grand Boulevard; 314-772-2456)
Ice cream on a hot summer night really hits the spot, and this time, you won't have to worry about spilling on your clothes! The ice cream is from Central Dairy, and it also serves frozen yogurt, which you can top with real fruit. Or, if you think you need a little something more substantial for your ride, grab a hot dog.
Next: Ride through Cherokee and Benton Park.
