Metro cyclists gave a thumbs-up to Sioux City's first bicycle lane, which opened up between Fairmount and Rustin Streets in September 2020.

"Hopefully, this will encourage people to bike instead instead of driving a car," Siouxland Cyclists member Ron Begnoche before going for a ride.

However, longtime cyclist Bob DeSmidt noted that Sioux City was by far the largest community in Iowa that didn't have bicycle lanes.

"We've definitely needed one for a very long time," he said.

Mayor Pro-Tem Dan Moore was in complete agreement.

"Increasingly bike trails and bike lanes are quality of life considerations," Moore said. "When people consider moving, they often ask how bike-friendly a city is."
