The most bike-friendly bridge I've ever ridden (other than those without any cars) is at mile 42.8, just three miles from downtown St Charles. Check out this link to learn more about the Page Avenue Missouri River Bridge.

There are no trails that will take you all the way into St Louis, but follow this link for route suggestions for getting from the Katy Trail to downtown St Louis. I welcome any feedback you might have on these routes, or any other suggested routes that you come up with.

Ditto on the Page bridge; there is a wonderful, wide, walled off biking/walking lane along the south side of the bridge. On the south (St. Louis) side of the bridge, that bike lane then turns into a bike trail that departs from the highway goes down to Creve Coeur Lake. I have ridden from Creve Coeur Lake across the bridge, picked up the Katy, and gone on into downtown St. Charles; it's a lovely ride.
