Residents in western Nebraska are looking for ways to turn the region into a hotspot for bicycling.
The Scottsbluff Star-Herald reports that supporters will discuss their options Tuesday night at the Legacy of the Plains Museum in Gering.
The meeting was organized by the Scotts Bluff County Tourism Office and Gering resident Mel Griggs. Organizers say the meeting is open to anyone with ideas, interests or expertise that could help nurture a bicycling culture.
Early ideas include the development of an off-road riding trail and upgrades to existing roads to encourage bicycle riding. Griggs says the group will also discuss possible races or charity rides.
