Old Chain of Rocks Bridge

This will be a two-post bike ride description – because I have too many pictures to share – eye roll. We parked at the N Riverfront Park on the St Louis Riverfront Trail VERY early in the morning – we got up at 4:30 and were on the road by 5:15. Another hot/humid day was predicted plus thunderstorms in the afternoon.

First we headed north to ride across the 1-mile long Chain of Rocks Bridge – a unique bridge with a 22% bend in the middle and served as a Route 66 crossing from 1936-1965.

A rest area just before the bridge:

On the other side of the bridge, in Illinois, we turned around and headed back to our starting point.
