Flagstaff residents and visitors can now use a smartphone app to borrow a bright orange bicycle. The six-month pilot program is run by a company called Spin, in partnership with the City of Flagstaff and Northern Arizona University. KNAU’s Melissa Sevigny reports.

Bicycling advocacy groups in Arizona are working to pass several bills related to bike safety. Arizona Public Radio’s Parker Olson reports.

A House panel voted this morning to let bicyclists pretty much ignore stop signs. Arizona Public Radio's Howard Fischer explains.

The legislation would let bicyclists treat stop signs as yield signs -- meaning they would need to stop only if there were cross traffic. Otherwise they could keep rolling. State Rep. Eric Meyer, a cycling enthusiast himself, told colleagues that having to come to a full stop is actually dangerous. That's because most serious cyclists actually clip their feet onto the pedals.
