Bikes 'n Bays

In the spirit of the Bikes on Bridges thread, lets see your bikes next to big bodies of water.

okay... back to the Mississippi just north of St. Louis...

First, the National Great Rivers Museum at the Melvin Price lock and dam. This is a bit north of the Chain of Rocks bridge, and south of Alton, Illinois. Locks and dams are what makes shipping stuff on rivers possible. Changes in elevation are accomplished in the lock and not by traversing rocky sections or small falls.

a quick review of the Chain of Rocks bridge, as seen from the Illinois side of the river:



and now the lock and dam and the associated museum...



here we see a barge approaching the lock and dam from the south.


Further up the river we see Alton and the cable stay bridge that is Highway 67. The bridge has a great bike path, although the Missouri side of the bridge had a terrible shoulder full of debris when I was there last. I think I got about 5 punctures in a few hundred yards, and used all of my tubes and patches.


There is a wonderful path that goes north out of Alton and up to Pere Marquette park, following the river. There are some scenic bluffs on this stretch, and you're bound to see a few barges too. The trail does use a shoulder on highway 100 for some of this stretch.

I would wager this is the preferred scenario, as opposed to its sibling, Bikes in Bays



More seriously, here's an 'old' photo of my former Miyata 1000 on the Hook, overlooking the Strait and Victoria Island (far background). A great day.

Not a bay, but the OP did say large bodies of water. Lake Michigan is one of those.

Took me a while to realize there was water in the background. I had to pry my eyes off the bike. I LOVE that masking on the chrome crown. Once you've seen it it's obvious, but nobody ever masked a crown there before, that I can recall. My 2nd-favorite Bianchi of all-time, after the early-'60s Specialissima.

Oh, yeah! Definitely a fan of the chrome masking (particularly the fork crown) on this '81. In fact, there are no less than 6 transitions from the dropout faces to the upper head lug

It sure is! I hope we some more from HOMES.

Honestly, I welcome pics with any big body of water - briny or fresh. I just thought"Bikes 'n Bays" sounded like a snappy thread title

Several on Puget Sound:

Lincoln Park close to home in West Seattle with Fauntleroy ferry in the background, first ride with 650B’s on the Marinoni.


West side of Bainbridge Island. After taking this photo, we helped the woman in the background who was struggling to get out of that boat.


Farther north at my favorite photo rock on beautiful Chuckanut Drive with a few of the San Juan Islands in the background.
