St. Louis Area Tag-o-Rama

It seems some riders on Missouri Tag-o-Rama would like a more St. Louis centered Tag-o-Rama that would include Illinois. I agree. So here we go.

The STL Area Tag-o-Rama

Let's keep the rules simple.

#1 - To "grab" the tag. Find the tag, and take a photo of your bike at the location.

#2 - To "drop" the tag. Take a photo of your bike at a new location, The first person to post the grabbed tag gets to "drop" (post) the next tag. To keep the game moving you need to "drop" the new tag immediately. If not the previous tag is still valid for others. Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located. Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties.

#3 - Tag must be findable and accessible by the public and by an average rider on a street bike. Gravel and dirt roads are fine, single track trails and deep water crossings are not!

#4 - File photos are permitted for dropping a new tag. You still must ride to the tag to grab it. If using a file photo, the same bike that is used for grabbing the existing tag must be in the tag drop photo, so we know it is somewhere you rode to, not some old photo your dad gave you.

#5 - The location of the tags must be no more than 150 miles (crow flight, not road miles) from the Gateway Arch.

#6 - No whining.

And here is the TAG to get it started.

There were some issues on the Missouri Tag-o-Rama about including Illinois. So the first tag here is a compromise.

It's the only church in Illinois that is on the Missouri (west) side of the Mississippi River

I think this is a great idea, it will be nice to have another tag to be on the lookout for. Here is a map showing a 150 mile (as the crow flies) radius from the arch. Hopefully this will be an easy and helpful reference.

Thanks for the map and link. I was wondering where a web site would be to figure out a radius from a known point.

Okay, here's my bike at the Church. In Kaskaskia, Illinois. West of the Mississippi. The church was founded in 1675. There is also a bell there that has a great history. The Liberty Bell of the West. Given to the church by King Louis XV of France in 1744.

New Tag

Located 29 miles due south of the Church. Another church. But while this church is nothing spectacular, what is behind the church surely is. A Grotto. Complete with waterfall. I can only put one picture per tag so I will put a picture of the Grotto below.
