Dozens of Missouri bicyclists, walkers, runners, and trail users visited the capitol to talk with their legislators and express their support for legislation to make Missouri communities safer and more inviting for walking and bicycling. Citizens spoke in support of the Safe Streets bill (HB2205) and the Complete Streets bill (HB2206).
