There are, by this point, tens of thousands of "#1 Dad!" coffee mugs in existence. There they sit — on kitchen tables, in cupboards, at the office — each proclaiming that the coffee-sipper is No. 1. How can this be? Is it a massive, ten-thousand-way tie? And if every dad is No. 1, doesn't the distinction lose its meaning? Help your dad avoid an existential quandary this Father's Day by avoiding the coffee mugs and offering something truly meaningful. Register your dad (and yourself!) for the second annual Father's Day Bike Ride on the Katy Trail, benefiting prostate-cancer research at the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine. This scenic ride provides a picture-perfect bonding experience. Depart from your choice of trailhead (including St. Charles, Maryland Heights, the University of Missouri Research Park and others), and pedal toward Defiance, where festivities await. Your $10 registration ($15 the day of the ride) includes a commemorative T-shirt, soft-drink tickets and water. Begin your ride as early as 6 a.m.; the event ends at 1 p.m. Visit www.fathersdaybikeride.com for more information and to register.
