Jack I think the reason many cyclists stick to Lincoln Ave or River Rd is because the core trail is often congested with tubers, hikers, runners, dog walkers, fishermen and even the occasional hot air balloon... especially on weekends. It's unsafe to ride a road bike at speeds of 20-25 mph on the core trail. With regards to your comment about cyclists and their rude, priviliged attitudes... a bit of an overgeneralization wouldnt you agree?
More Meglen, less parking pieces please! Thank you Joe, keep spreading the truth.
Congrats to the Sailors on the great win, but what's up with the no shot clock rule? Zzzzzz.
Allow me to clarify... I do know Scott but I don't claim to know what specific medical condition he has. I can only assume it is a common one since it did not preclude him from having a valid CO driver's license. The main point I was trying to make is that IMO Scott is not a criminal and does not belong behind bars.
John do you know Scott? I do. He's a good man. The guilt he'll carry for the rest of his life for this unfortunate ACCIDENT is punishment enough. At the time of the accident he held a valid Colorado driver's license and was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. He simply lost control of his vehicle due to a medical condition that afflicts millions of other Americans. Putting Scott behind bars will not bring Mr. Bernhard back to life, nor will it ease the pain of his friends and family I imagine. Bottom line is that there are inherent risks we undertake when traveling by plane, train, or automobile. That risk increases significantly when traveling by motorbike. My intent is not to appear insensitive to the victims involved, only to emphasize that this unfortunate event was indeed an accident and not a crime.
Still... I agree, a bypass is long overdue. I'm tired of the rigs, backups, noise, and exhaust downtown. Someday it will happen. I'm just surprised that the Pilot even included choice number 4 in this poll. Cycling is an International sport and Steamboat is a world class, destination resort. The exposure that a race of this magnitude can bring to the Boat is underestimated. The whole town should line the streets Fri & Sat with cowbells in hand!
stillinsteamboat... sorry to inconvenience your precious Friday commute. Here are a few ideas for you: Hilltop connector, River Road, N. Steamboat Blvd, or how about a nice, healthy morning BIKE ride on our core trail? Do you get this annoyed when Main street closes so kids can trick or treat on Halloween? How about the 4th of July Parade? Winter Carnival? To the 150 people or so that can't wait for the race to be over, why not at least TRY and show a little support for our community and such a great event? The race will be in & out in the blink of an eye and the sprint finish Friday afternoon will be an exciting spectacle to watch. C'mon and sit down around the campfire with us instead of trying to take a leak on it!
