With Jefferson City's bicycle subcommittee resurrected, the Environmental Quality Commission is working toward implementing the group's goals.

Six people have shown interest in joining the subcommittee, four of whom attended the Environmental Quality Commission meeting Wednesday, Commission Vice Chair Ashley Varner said.

A Jefferson City bicycle subcommittee existed in the early 2000s but disbanded sometime later. It was revived last month with the purpose of providing more "substance to cycling," said Varner, who will head the subcommittee.

Jeff Smith, utility regulatory auditor for the Missouri Department of Economic Development, attended Wednesday's commission meeting and said he wants to join the subcommittee to encourage more cycling and improve the city's cycling infrastructure, such as providing more bike racks. Smith biked the Katy Trail and said with it nearby, the community should have more features to attract bicyclists.
