Awwww, c'mon?!?!....We even had a mural painted, new bike lanes and everything!

And can someone please blame this on cannabis? I need a good laugh this morning.

I think it's a poor choice from the USAPCC to put the race down in far SW colorado. Durango, Telluride, Montrose are 7-8 hours away from the Front range population. Steamboat got the raw end of next years race and I think race attendance will suffer due to the route's distance from Denver.

They were looking for the city to declare a "Bike to Your Dispensary Week" but someone left it off of the bid.
