Bike I-64 and don't forget your layers!

Your only chance to bike the new section of Interstate 64/Highway 40 between Kingshighway in St. Louis and Interstate 170 is Sunday. On Monday, the highway reopens to motorized traffic, and you won't be able to bike it again.

For those of you hardy enough to bike, dress in layers. The high temperature is only expected to hit 45 degrees tomorrow.

From noon to 4 p.m., the eastbound lanes of the highway will be open to bicyclists, while the westbound lanes are open to pedestrians.

From 7:30 to 10 a.m., Big Shark Bicycle Co. is sponsoring an individual time trial on the eastbound lanes. From 8 to 10 a.m., the St. Louis Track Club is sponsoring a 5K run on the westbound lanes.

The two-year project to rebuild I-64/Highway 40 between Kingshighway and I-270 is being completed several weeks ahead of schedule, so there's plenty of reasons to celebrate.
