Kill the bicycle ban before it grows…

It’s curious that a little Colorado casino town would decide to go out of its way to ban bicycles while so many other communities are trying to be bike-friendly.

Bicycle Colorado and others are right, of course: Bad precedent.

One would hope a little common sense will prevail before a lot of money is raised and spent on legal action.

Since I’m in sort of in the neighborhood, maybe I’ll drop in on Black Hawk and wave around a little of the green stuff that I won’t be spending there.

You can help by sending a polite email to CityClerk@CityofBlackHawk.org – and by avoiding the casinos. To borrow a few words from a favorite song and apply them to the ban:

“Kill it before it grows.”

    This is just silly!

    Cycling creates more benefits for everyone in the long run. These profit seeking people drive me crazy…

    I’m with the bikers!
