  Ryan Warner of Colorado Public Radio interviewed CSP chief Mark Trostel and Bicycle Colorado executive director Dan Grunig regarding the 2500 rider limit on Colorado cycling events. Click here to listen to the MP3 audio file of the interview.

   Mark Trostel holds to his "safety" rationale, even while explaining in this interview that the events are not unsafe, but that his concern was that these events are impeding motorist traffic.

   Grunig points out that cycling events in Colorado generate $160 million in income and 2000 jobs each year.

   Trostel says the State Patrol gets inundated with complaints during bicycling events. I say cyclists need to inundate the CSP with complaints about the number of cars on the road.
