The third phase of Bike St. Louis will officially launch on Saturday, April 25th, 2015 from 10-12pm!
Get your bike out of the garage and join us at the Cabanne Branch of the St. Louis Public Library at 1106 Union Boulevard. Our partner BWorks will have bicycle mechanics on hand for free tune-ups, come on out. Ribbon cutting and remarks at 10:30am and then our partner Trailnet will lead 2 free bike rides (8 miles and 20 miles) so everyone can try out the new street routes. Register for the rides here.
Hope to see you there!
There is another vehicle in your house. It's fun to drive and cheaper, too. It gets you from point A to point B while saving you money and improving your health. And, thanks to Great Rivers Greenway, it even has its own routes and paths, especially designed to get you to where you need to go.
Great Rivers Greenway, in partnership with the cities of St. Louis, Clayton, Maplewood and Kirkwood, have developed Bike St. Louis with over 95 miles of on-street facilities and bike routes. You can pick up maps at our office or print your own at the link below.
Resources for riding a bike on the streets of St. Louis:
In addition to Bike St. Louis, Great Rivers Greenway developed a regional bicycle plan which has identified a 1,000-mile system of street bike routes. This 20-year plan was completed in summer 2011 and more information on the plan can be found by clicking here.
