Meanwhile the Wisconsin Bicycle Federation is kicking off a new safety campaign -- "Three Feet - It's The Law". That's the distance drivers need to allow when passing cyclists on the road. It includes new signs, billboards, and public service announcements.

The group will also be proposing new bike routes, signage, and maps in the Wausau area today.
