What great news, hopefully this program will receive the support to continue. What better way to teach the value of fresh food and its tastiness!
Team Pain deserves a very big "Job Well Done!" for the way they came in so late in the season and completed Phase I before much snow arrived. The design and workmanship quality are excellent. There are so many features both familiar and innovative and every inch of concrete is rideable. Skaters will be finding new lines and new challenges almost endlessly. As for the time of year the construction occurred, it is frustrating for skaters to have winter close the door without at least a few test rides. However, if it had been put off until next season it would be mid-summer before it would be at this point of completion. Also, the cool temperatures and less intense sunshine of the fall allowed the concrete finishers to take their time and get a perfect surface.
Here's a short video of one of the park builders taking a "break" in the bowl:
For a good look at freeride cycling the Bud Werner library has the DVD "Roam" by the Collective, filmed in Whistler, British Columbia, the Moab area, and other locations.
"The trucker told police he was trying to avoid the heavy Lincoln Avenue traffic."
But, what's heavier traffic than wide-load semi trucks? That's what the highway is for and they should stay on the highway and leave Oak Street for bicyclists.
This sounds like road bikes but that wasn't mentioned. Great idea. Are you talking about closing Lincoln Ave. downtown on Labor Day weekend?
Thanks for a well-put endorsement of cycling. It's a great way to combine business and pleasure. I can't say I've often enjoyed driving to work, but a spin on the bike always seems to brighten the day. Taking a ride after work back home can allow one to leave the day's concerns behind.
When you notice the abundance of 20, 30, even 50-year old bikes around town you realize how long they last and how cheap bicycling can be. These aren't pampered collector's items, either, but tools that are run day in and day out through all kinds of weather. That's the best kind of resource use, build things to last and keep 'em working.
Steamboat Springs truly has abundant pleasures for pedaling. The 2500-mile Great Divide Mountain Bike Route of off-pavement backroads and trails passes through on its way between Roosville, Montana and Antelope Wells, New Mexico. Also lots of cross-country cyclotourists pass through on their way between Dinosaur Mounument and Rocky Mtn. Natl. Park. From these long distance journeys to a quick spin to the post office, it's a great place to ride a bike.
Congratulations to the town for recognizing a serious problem and making a step in the right direction.
I don't see the sense in holding the hypothetical teen host accountable because the parent must have bought the alcohol and is its owner. Parents need to keep the booze under lock and key and should be held responsible. This would get right to the root of the problem, teens' access to alcohol. If somebody's child plays with their unlocked gun and tragedy results, isn't it the gun owner's fault? Apply the same reasoning to alcohol, our deadliest drug.
Congratulations, Paula! Great work noticing this man and surely saving his life! We all owe the Patrol gratitude for saving our necks both in and out of the Ski Area.
Are there no conditions on this bill to the effect that motorists driving at the speed limit need not yield the road to speeding offenders? What about those driving a safe speed under slippery and/or limited visibility conditions, need they yield the road to the reckless and/or irresponsible? I really don't see how requiring those driving responsibly to yield to the irresponsible would increase public safety. Thank you, thank you very much.
