Pat West 3 hours, 31 minutes ago on Tom Schatz: An environmental waste of breath

I just posted the verse to show that even Jesus knew that any faith would be challenged, and that believers should remain faithful even amongst haters. (Jesus' word not mine)

I thought Mark's bastardization of the scripture should be corrected so that the newly forming Church of Holy Environmentalism could benefit from all the teachings of Jesus instead of the distorted view put forth from his followers. Keep in mind during this silly forum debate that some posters deny science to the point of rejecting our common kinship with apes, and that a God that is outside time and space still took human "days" to create everything.

Matt10.22 "You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. " Look Hartless, Your hate is part of the story

Stand firm Church of the Holy Enviroments. Even Jesus know what stands in your way.

If you reread my post, I do not say it is ok, I just offer an explanation as to why. Just like I offered my theory on why drivers speed. I don't think either is ok, I just offered a theory on why. I would love to see SSPD ticketing both to stop this dangerous and illegal activity.

I would PS by saying Kremmling probably changed to one lane to stop thru traffic from making the "Kremmling pass" and speeding in their downtown, not to protect their cycling image. But it does show that where there is a will, CDot will respond, and bike lanes on US-40 are possible in northwest colorado. Just not yet here in bike town USA.

That is a good idea, directions like " bike route" with arrows pointing to Yampa st., for eastbound at 3rd, and Oak st. at 12th for westbound. These would be suggestions for travel, and not a law requiring cyclists to use these routes.

My main concern is out where the speed limit is 45mph, and turn lanes are built for decelerating automobiles, but do not take into consideration cyclists. If you ride then you know about how in front of Ski Haus, you have a nice 8ft shoulder, but then at the corner it becomes a turn lane and on a bike you get shorted out of a safe lane. Where do you go then? where?

Downtown where the speed limit is 25, and with limitations in lane size, and the 3ft to pass law, you should not be passing a cyclist, unless the other lane is clear, and you move over into it. If the cyclist is moving up on your right side, they are breaking the law, and once again, enforcement/education and lack of suitable road design is the problem. We can't fix downtown, but we can fix the higher speed sections of Lincoln, with design, and some paint.

No, but having a lane from the Shell station to downtown, where the speed limit is 45mph, and each intersection has a turn lane, but no lane for safe travel for a cyclist. This forces cyclists either to block the turn lane, or ride out in the car's lane. The City did this on Walton Creek rd at US-40, and that a great addition to our streets. Having this type of infrastructure down the fastest, busiest road in Steamboat, would be far better advertising of our commitment to becoming a bike town then any ad campaign could portray.

New asphalt, same road. I'm disappointed that our city leadership will market this town a a bike town but does not stand up to CDot and demand infrastructure for the huge numbers of cyclists that use this road for commuting and recreation. In my opinion nothing would say we a a bike friendly community more than a bike lane down US-40. Kremmling has done it, why can't we?

Pat West 3 days, 13 hours ago on Dusty Atkinson: Merge in right place

The factor that most controls how fast you make it through the construction zone is the traffic light. Not the merge point. Merge here or merge there, but wherever someone wants to merge, Please let them in the line, otherwise you are the rude one.
