SUNSET HILLS, MO (KPLR) –On Saturday morning, more than 300 cyclists from Illinois and Missouri took part in a demonstration bike ride on the streets of Sunset Hills that ended with at rally at city hall. All of it was done in an effort to raise awareness about bike safety on the roads.
The idea was sparked after the death of cyclist Rick Beard and the recent accident involving Sunset Hills Mayor Mark Furrer and cyclist Randy Murdick last week. Now activists are voicing their concerns and want tougher enforcement of bike laws for drivers.
Another demonstration is set for Monday morning in front of St. Louis city hall at 9am.
