Biking the Greenway

Great Rivers Greenway is forging ahead in the development of a system of more than 1,000 miles of high-quality greenways, parks and trails across the St. Louis region. The organization completed The Gateway Bike Plan last year, and is now working to promote the trails that already exist and form partnerships between the communities that will eventually help connect them. The plan aims to provide safe, convenient on-road bike paths connecting the region’s communities, greenways and trails. The impressive network not only encourages healthy, active lifestyles, but also makes bicycling a viable mode of transportation to work or school. The plan will be set into motion over the next 20 years, with the first phase due to be completed in 2017. To find out how you can help promote biking in your community, visit grgstl.org.
