Jefferson City's Environmental Quality Commission will consider recreating a bicycle subcommittee to ensure cycling safety and education.

The purpose of the committee, which the Environmental Quality Commission would oversee, is to create a cycling culture in Jefferson City by providing education and safety courses, creating more resources and hosting events.

A bicycle subcommittee existed in the early 2000s, but it is unknown when it was created or disbanded.

"We want to reignite that and really have three, four, five members who are really focused and fired up about supporting that initiative," said commission Vice-Chair Ashley Varner, who presented the idea.

The commission will vote on the proposal July 26.
