Montana is an amazing state to ride in whether you are visiting Glacier National Park or simply riding on mostly car free rural roads. In a bill proposed (named LC2196) in December 2016 laws in the state will limit cycling dramatically:
“A bicyclist may not ride on a two-lane highway outside the boundaries of a municipality when there is no paved shoulder on which to ride.” -bill LC2196
If passed the bill will ban cyclists from riding on two-lane roads without a paved shoulder in the state on a total of 7,000 miles of paved road and nearly 41,000 miles of unpaved dirt roads!
If you live in Montana and enjoy cycling make your voice heard.
