I went to college in Columbia. Walts bike shop has a racing team that competes in road and cyclocross races. Very cool guys. My old roommate is on the team. The University of Missouri-Columbia has a team as well. I'm betting you'd have to be a student to get on though. Always saw them riding up and down the streets.
Columbia bikers and motorists have a pretty bad relationship. Mainly due to the number of inexperienced bikers that the college brings into town. Could you go car free, of course. But it would really matter where you lived. It's an awesome city. I had a blast there. Get a cross bike and ride all the gravel trails. You won't regret it.
PM me with where you plan on moving, and I'll let you know what's cool around you.
