Route 66 bike trail

The League of Illinois Bicyclists and the Route 66 Trail Executive Committee are sponsoring a bicycle tour from St. Louis to Chicago to promote the state’s Route 66 Bike Route.

It leaves August 29 from the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge north of St. Louis and ends September 3 at Route 66’s origin point, near the Art Institute. Some will bike the entire 300 miles; some league members, bike clubs and others will join for portions of the trip.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources has published a detailed guide to the bike route (pdf).
