Several news resources in Colorado have picked up the story of the Colorado State Patrol's restriction on cycling events in the state. A quote in the Boulder Daily Camera confirms what I already knew: that the restriction isn't for safety as is claimed but is for motorist convenience.
"One of the problems the State Patrol is trying to correct is when large numbers of cyclists ride side-by-side during bike tours, taking over a highway and delaying traffic, [Colorado State Pastrol Sergeant Jeff] Goodwin said."
Here's another winner from
"We've had everything from people throwing tacks out the back of pickup trucks to take out a bunch of cyclists, to drunk drivers getting out and attacking the bicyclists they're making their way around the course."
Instead of busting the motorists who are breaking the law, you punish the cyclists. What a bunch of geniuses.
