There is a great local resource for riders in St. Louis called Missouri Trailnet (here). There is a specific suborganization that supports women cyclists in the Metro STL area. The group is called "Arch Women" (link here).
I subscribe to the Arch Women email to receive updates about events, such as Women's Bike Lunches and Happy Hour Bike Rides. (Hat tip to Melissa for referring me to them!)
Here's the email, word-for-word (links intact for ease of clicking):
