Riverwalk Security Guards Back At It
13 Replies

Not that the Riverwalk is much use with the eastern section under construction, but the yellow jackets are back at it falsely claiming cyclists are required by law to walk their bikes. Saw it happen…Continue

Temporary Flyover Failure
9 Replies

For those of you coming down the temporary Flyover ramp onto the existing path, beware of this trench. It's deeper than it looks, filled with water, and with the current configuration, cyclists…Continue

"Sadness... I've been avoiding that area for a week now. Crossing on foot at that intersection (Michigan Ave / Oak St) has gotten too dangerous with oncoming cars running the red light on their left turn.  I used to play a game of…"

"This morning I noticed that a metal plate has been placed over this trench, making it much smoother. The merge point still remains a horrible design that I'm sure will lead to near collisions all summer, but at least you won't get…"

Tooscrapps replied to V W's discussion Anti biking tax law change that we might've missed
"Was an easy way for them to bank some savings on paper. Given the way it was set up, many employers never even offered it. Hopefully any new bill will make it a bit easier to self-report like you would business expenses. If (when?) Divvy gets on the…"

Tooscrapps replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Lake Front crash from last night
"Agreed. Throw in the folks that are getting back out there since the "separation" has been implemented and there is a lot of chaos. I'm chalking a lot of the peds/joggers on the bike path as them just taking the route they always…"

"We'd have to do some more research on the contracts and those cases, but common law precedent rulings don't necessarily trump Federal law if there were other legally binding elements. So it may very well be the case that the City…"

"It's kind of funny, the Riverwalk was designed with sharp turns to slow cyclists and reduce conflicts. If only CDOT applied this line of thinking to our streets more often."

""Why should one have to walk their bike more than a mile when it's empty and safe to ride?" Agreed. If it is crowded, walk it. If it isn't, it is a 50/50. I've walked it with my significant other... then there's the…"

"Again, nothing wrong with walking your bike when the Riverwalk is crowded and it is unsafe to ride. The Riverwalk is 1.3 miles long from end to end. Why should one have to walk their bike more than a mile when it's empty and safe to ride?"
