This Monday, August 4, 2014, bicyclists held a rally outside of City Hall to advocate for bicycle rights. The downtown St. Louis rally focused on increased legal protections- and increased awareness of the legal protections that already exist for bicyclists.
Recently a fifty-four year old man was tragically killed while riding a bicycle in North St. Louis. There have been over eighty-nine bicycle and motor vehicle accidents this year in Missouri. These types of accidents are often very dangerous for bicyclists, even with the protection of a helmet. St. Louis bicycle commuters are asking for increased bike lanes throughout the city and a three-foot passing law to ensure better safety for bicyclists. Mayor Slay's office has responded with a plan for ninety-seven more miles of bike lanes within the city. Hopefully, this type of support can increase the safety of bicycling in the Metro St. Louis area.
