WESTON – Mayor Camille Larsen has nothing against bicycle racers. She enjoys rides on self-propelled two-wheeled vehicles for pleasure herself.
But Larsen and the city council are sending out a message to bicycle racing groups choosing to include Weston as a part of their racing itineraries: you must pay a permit fee and abide by certain rules, particularly when it comes to courtesy on the road for the sake of safety and the free flow of traffic.
The $200 permit fee will be refunded “if all goes well” during a bike racing group’s time while cycling through town, Larsen emphasized to The Citizen.
Last week, the city council unanimously voted to approve the permit fee and other rules, the mayor said. That followed experiences of last year where about a half dozen groups traveled through the city, usually originating their races in Utah.
Some of the racers didn’t follow decorum that made for always pleasant memories of their brief visits to the city, Larsen said.
