Cape Girardeau working towards bicycle friendly community

Cape Girardeau joins the list of Missouri cities working towards Bicycle Friendly Community status, according to a recent SEMissourian article:
On Saturday, hundreds of bicyclists are expected to participate in the annual Tour de Cape.

The tour is an opportunity for Cape Girardeau to showcase its city to bicyclists from a wide region. Closer to home, the cycling community has concerns about safety and access issues. But there are at least two camps who have philosophical differences on how the city should improve two-wheel transportation.

One group, Leadership Cape, a product of the Cape Girardeau Chamber of Commerce, wants to use a model based on Complete the Streets, which takes into account pedestrian, bike and other forms of transportation besides cars. This plan is limited to certain areas of the city.

A cycling group, called the Velo Girardeau bike club, is simultaneously pursuing the Bicycle Friendly Community plan offered by the League of American Bicyclists. This plan is more focused on including bicycles in the city's transportation system, focusing on adding lanes to the existing road network. This plan would cover the entire city. . . .
