saw that today Brent. thanks!
It's too bad that the mobile version no longer shows the most-discussed stories. I think you will lose some clicks as a result, since people won't know to look for the latest comments on old stories.
$700 for a jacket??? Yikes.
It would be interesting to know why the ski area has changed its snow-making focus in the past two seasons. Used to be they opened Vagabond up before the Glaze, also allowing people to ride Thunderhead. That seemed a better way, because it spread the lift riders out a bit and gave low-intermediate skiers somewhere to go (Heavenly Daze generally feeling more difficult than Vagabond, especially when its all man-made). Can the Pilot do a story on this?
Too bad they won't be supporting teleworkers...
I know I'm gonna get hated on here for posting this, but it is a perspective, certainly, and apparently not terribly far from where the SS police fit in: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/05/opinion/sunday/if-kant-were-a-new-york-cyclist.html?_r=1&hp
Then again, we are not the only community dealing with this. Perhaps it's time to invest in a GoPro... http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/21/technology/bicyclists-using-cameras-to-capture-accidents.html
Brian, in my case it WAS a police officer who nearly ran me off the road... so what happens then?
Jerry, I'm curious to hear your response to Scott's post, which is simply stating the obvious. In the same way that it's not OK for an angry driver to chase down the idiot driver who ran a stop sign ahead of him, or cur him off on the highway, it's not OK for angry drivers to buzz cyclists to send some kind of message. One of these days, someone's going to get killed... and that will have repercussions for the cyclist AND the driver. (And if the cyclist happens to be a completely law-abiding rider, too bad for him?)
I just don't understand all the anger toward cyclists. Yes, a lot of clueless riders in town run stop signs and, less often, red lights. A lot of clueless pedestrians do, too, but you don't hear too many complaints about them. On the roads outside town, what is the big deal here? You have to wait 5 seconds to pass someone? Why is that such a huge problem? I ride alone, so I am always single file, and I ride as far to the right as is safe without getting too close to the gravel and dirt. And yet, once a ride at least, someone decides it's fun to pass me with inches to spare. Why is that OK?
Yesterday I was riding on Twenty Mile, when a Routt County Sheriff's vehicle almost ran me off the road. He gave me maybe 6 inches of clearance, and I was already as far to the right as was possible without moving onto gravel or dirt. Since there was no oncoming traffic, I have no idea what the driver's motivation was, but I sure wish our law enforcement was up to speed on the law.
Some local young musicians will be playing violin, solo and in ensemble, at 10:30am at the Parra's house--worth a listen!
