There are many bike trails, as well as the many well-paved roads in the St. Louis area, to spend a warm summer’s day, just pedaling away. The following links will take you to these trails, and give you a place to escape on those cold Midwestern winter nights. The master plan is to eventually construct over 200 miles of interconnecting trails in the Bi-State region for commuting or just riding. And, on the Illinois side of the river, a 450 mile network of trails extending to Chicago.
The centerpiece of this system will be the Old Route 66/Chain-of-Rocks Bridge across the Mississippi River. This bridge provides the only truly bike-friendly crossing for cross-country touring cyclists for several hundred miles.
