Bill by Rep. Barry Usher would ban bicyclists from most 2-lane roads in Montana

January 20, 2017

Bicyclists from around the state are rallying against a proposed bill that would ban bicyclists and pedestrians from using virtually every two-lane road in the state that doesn't have a paved shoulder.

Kristi Drake, director of Billings TrailNet, said her first thought was not to worry about the proposal because it seemed to have so little chance of passing.

After giving it more thought, however, she concluded, "Stranger things have happened with our Legislature. We'd better pay attention to it."
