WISCONSIN - Bicyclists in Wisconsin could get new, marked routes to use.
The DNR is working on trying to mark new routes throughout the state, and ones that go out of state.
First, the department needs rider's opinions.
The DNR has a list of proposed areas where it wants the trails to go.
It wants the public's input on what specific routes could be used in those areas.
"That's just the corridor that's been identified. What we're looking for at this next round of meetings will be to look within that corridor and actually try and identify a specific route, specific trails or highways or streets that would be the most accommodating for bicycles," says DNR Communications Specialist Paul Holtan.
DNR leaders say more people are biking.
That's why it wants to make sure people have routes to use.
"As people look at alternative transportation, what we want to do is make sure that we have safe and identifiable routes for people to use," Holtan said.
A meeting will be held at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau on October first.
It starts at 4:30 and goes until 7:30.
