Cycling advocates descended on the Sarasota County Commission meeting yesterday, pushing for changes in the traffic pattern in Venice along Center Road.

Four cyclists were hit last week by a 91-year old driver- one of those cyclists died earlier this week from his injuries.

The groups are asking the commission to change the speed limit from 45 miles per hour to 35 miles per hour. Commissioners say they will look into the change and will discuss other options at a later meeting.
