Tension mounts as 881 cyclists, 1,412 motorists share Deer Creek Canyon
In one hour on Saturday, 150 cyclists cruised along the narrow road that twists through Deer Creek Canyon in Jefferson County — a popular route known for both its scenery and palpable tensions between cyclists and motorists.
The strife between residents who drive the canyon roads and bicyclists began more than a decade ago, fueled by everything from aggressive motorists who honk and crowd cyclists, to discourteous cyclists who ride more than two abreast and urinate in front yards. In an effort to ease those tensions, Bike Jeffco surveyed and counted cyclists who passed through the canyon Saturday.
