Useful Missouri bicycle maps online

Missouri bicyclists,

MoDOT, in cooperation with MoBikeFed and other bicycling groups around the state, has been working on a set of new bicycle maps for Missouri for several years.

The maps are still at the draft stage and made available for comment. But recently I was helping someone work out a route using the draft maps and it brought home again just how useful these maps have become, even though "merely" at the draft stage.

The maps show which roads have shoulders and give an indication of how much traffic each road carries. In addition, the map shows routes like the Mississippi River Trail and (a proposed update/revision of) the TranAmerican Trail through Missouri.

You can view/download/print the maps in PDF format at the MoDOT web site.

Other maps are available on MoBikeFed's map page.
