a great way to see St. Louis

I rode, slowly and w/ some nice breaks all around St. Louis this morning. Almost 63 miles - over 100 kilometers.

Bellerive Park on S Broadway has a great, shady view of the river and it has become a favorite place for me to have a rest stop.

A little later in the morning, after iced coffee by the World Chess Hall of Fame, I contemplated my strategy to beat the heat and get the miles in I hoped for. Lots of hydration and riding in some shady places like Forest & Tower Grove Parks makes a difference.
