By  | 

It's now legal to ride a bike on Texas Avenue, in College Station. Thursday evening the council amended it's traffic code to repeal an existing bicycle prohibition on the street.

Council member Katy-Marie Lyles said she didn't support changing the law for safety reasons.

Council Member John Crompton, who said he is a bicycle rider, said the change had the support of the bicycle community.

The change passed with six voting in favor, and Lyles casting the only opposing vote.
