I am doing some preliminary planning on routes to next year's BMWMOA rally at Sedalia, MO and I submit this to folks in the Midwest who are familiar with the roads around St. Louis.
We want to travel on US Route 50 through Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. We have a rider in our group who is terrified of Interstates and I can't see a way to get around St. Louis without using the Interstates.
Can anyone suggest an alternative route around St. Louis, if we approach from the east on US Route 50? If it is impossible to avoid the Interstates, is there an optimal time to travel without encountering too much traffic?
