Illinois! - Virtually Biking Across America - Day 105
On Day 105, I rode 20.7 miles from Missouri into Illinois. I started the ride at the junction of Highway 100 (Manchester Avenue) and South Big Bend Boulevard. I followed Highway 100 into the downtown. I turned left on North Broadway, left on Clark Avenue past Busch Stadium, right South 8th Street, right on Chestnut Street toward the St. Louis Arch and left Memorial Drive. I followed Memorial Drive to Eads Bridge across the Mississippi River into Illinois. Across the River, I took Riverpark Drive to Collinsiville Ave to St. Clair Avenue. St. Clair Avenue eventually turns into the Lincoln Highway. I finished the ride at the junction of the Lincoln Highway and Highway 159 [North Illinois Avenue] in Fairview Heights.
The trip log for Virtually Biking Across America is here.
I got a good view of Busch Stadium as I was riding along. Jack is a huge Cardinals fan; we need to make a trip to St. Louis.
I was also able to see the St. Louis Arch from a number of different angles.
