I agree with Bob. I'm from St. Louis, and I remember when they opened up one big highway (could have been 270 but I'm not sure) and it was great fun to ride out there on this HUGE roadway with bikes.
Yes, there were some inexperienced cyclists out there, but far less than the Moonlight Ramble, for example. No problem really.
It reminds me of the line from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxie when Ford is telling Arthur how big the universe is. "You think it's a long way from your house to the Chemist's, but compared to the universe, that's peanuts!"
So you may think there's a good sized bike lane on your local trail or MUP, but compared to the Interstate, that's peanuts!
