New Bicycle Rules Proposed For Downtown Findlay

8/10/18 – 4:54 A.M.

New rules for bicyclists in downtown Findlay are back on the table. The Courier reports the Findlay City Council Streets, Sidewalks & Parking Committee talked about the issue Thursday. The group talked about a “dismount” policy for parts of downtown. The rules could require bicyclists to take alleys, walk their bicycles while downtown, or ride in the street.

Council talked about similar rules last year but tabled the issue due to construction in downtown. The 2017 proposal set fines of up to $150 for violating the ordinance.

Councilman Grant Russel is part of the committee and an avid bicyclist. He says dismount zones aren’t uncommon in other downtown areas.
