Road and Route Information


In order to plan the safest route, on-road bicyclists must have as much information as possible about existing road conditions, especially regarding traffic volume and the location of paved shoulders. Other helpful information includes lane widths, elevations, scenic byways and amenities such as restaurants, park locations and lodging. Signs are extremely helpful to indicate route directions for designated bicycle routes, locations of shared use paths and directions to places of interest.

Mississippi River Trail  

The Mississippi River Trail is a north-south, on-road, signed bicycle route (with signs that say MRT) that connects ten states between Louisiana and Minnesota. Maps of this route are divided by MoDOT districts and include an additional map of the St. Louis area.  The cue sheet for instructions on how to follow the trail is under On-Trail Directions.

Shared Use Paths  

Shared Use Paths are built for pedestrian and bicycle transportation as well as recreational use. Most shared paths are 10-feet wide, paved paths separated from the roadway. However, the longest shared path in the state, the Katy Trail, has a surface of crushed limestone.
