MDC proposes allowing bicycle use on conservation area service roads

The Missouri Conservation Commission gave initial approval to the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) at its January meeting on a proposed change to Wildlife Code of Missouri regulations that would allow the expanded use of bicycles on many department-area service roads.

“Many of our conservation area users have expressed interest in allowing bicycles on service roads for greater access to the areas,” said MDC Deputy Director and Chair of the Regulations Committee Mike Hubbard.

“Opening service roads to bicycles will provide greater opportunities for cyclists – and also hunters, anglers, and wildlife watchers – wanting to access more of their conservation areas.”
