St. Charles, Mo. County Council decided to table the proposed bike ban after the bill’s initial reading last night. Thanks to all county residents and advocates who spoke out against the proposed ban!
The fight is not over! The County Council will pick the issue back up at next month’s meeting, with the potential to add more highways to the proposed ban. The League will continue to work with our colleagues at Missouri DOT, Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation, St. Louis Regional Bicycle Federation and our local members and other cyclists.
If you live in St. Charles County it’s not too late to speak up! Tell your Council members to vote against this bill in our Advocacy Center.
