Summer is full on and so is the heat and that means many cyclists head up to escape the heat. There has already been one death of a cyclist this summer, is this a sign that tensions are rising again or does this event still stand as a one off with one driver? I personally have not had any negative experiences in the canyon, now the route to Carter Lake is completely different.
"The need for the Road Code was identified through a collaborative process among residents and bicyclists resulting in signage that will hopefully make the canyon experience safer and more enjoyable for all users," Boulder County Transportation Director George Gerstle said. "These roads have become very popular among cyclists and we wanted to create signage that would speak to them - not just to motorists - and become a part of their canyon experience."
