Bicycle and motorcycle rides are under scrutiny in Iowa County. An informational hearing was held Monday night on potentially increasing regulations for such events.

For years, authorities say they've dealt with numerous complaints from landowners and motorists.

Craig Hardy is the Iowa County Highway Commissioner. He says the goal is to improve safety. Opponents fear the plan will hurt the economy.

Like Dane County, our neighbors to the west host many biking events, like the "Horrible Hilly Hundreds" and the "Dairyland Dare".

A sub committee is being formed to look into the matter. A vote isnt expected until next spring.
